The Missouri men's basketball team lost 77-56 to rival Kansas on Saturday afternoon at Mizzou Arena.

Missouri led 17-10 midway through the first half but then lost all momentum, and the Jayhawks finished the half on a 30-7 run to lead by 16.

The Tigers erased most of the lead quickly in the second half, cutting it to four points with 13 minutes left to play. But Kansas responded with a 17-2 run in the next five minutes and coasted to its 29th win of the season.

Despite forcing 19 Kansas turnovers, Missouri played sloppily and out-of-sync for much of the game. Missouri finishes the regular season 22-9 and 10-6 in the Big 12.
