Big 12 Tournament Recap: Mike Anderson & Mizzou Still Can't Beat Texas A&M

 It's possible that Missouri head coach Mike Anderson wishes Texas A&M would have gone to the SEC when conference re-alignment was happening (assuming ofcourse Anderson doesn't bolt for Arkansas job) as his Tigers fell last night to the Aggies by a score of 86-71. The loss moves Anderson's coaching record against Texas A&M to an abysmal 0-6.

While it was the sixth straight loss to A&M by an Anderson coached Missouri team it represents the 8th straight loss by the Tigers against the Aggies.

The game was never really in doubt as the Aggies jumped out to a nine point lead by the second media timeout and basically controlled the game throughout. The Tigers offered little resistance early to A&M as they only made 2 of their first 18 shot attempts from the floor.

Missouri ended up only 19-56 overall from the floor for a 33.9% average and they were worse from three point range where they only connected on 3 of 15 attempts.

Texas A&M was much more efficient as they finished 26-45 from the floor and 8-16 from long range.

David Loubeau and B.J. Holmes led A&M in scoring with 20 points apiece while Marcus Denmon led all scorers with 22 points in a losing effort.

While the loss should not put Missouri onto the bubble it can't help Tiger fans feel good about their team heading into the NCAA Tournament as they have now lost four of their last five games.

With the win the Aggies move on to the semi-finals to take on the #2 seeded Texas Longhorns who dispatched Oklahoma 74-54 earlier in the day on Thursday.
