The Tigers are making their ninth straight Big 12 Tournament appearance and will face Texas in the opening round for the second consecutive season as Mizzou topped the Longhorns, 7-3, in the tournament opener for both teams in 2010.

The winner of Division One will face the winner of Division Two in the Big 12 Championship Tournament game on Sunday (May 29) at 1 p.m. Division Two of the bracket is comprised of second-seeded Texas A&M, third-seeded Oklahoma, sixth-seeded Kansas State and seventh-seeded Texas Tech. Nebraska and Kansas did not qualify for the eight-team tournament.
