COLUMBIA — The No. 4 Missouri men's basketball team made a comeback for the ages against No. 8 Kansas on Saturday night at Mizzou Arena, winning 74-71.

Missouri travels to Kansas on Feb. 25 for a rematch on the Jayhawks' turf.

Missouri's switch to the Southeastern Conference means the two teams won't be playing each other again in the Big 12 Conference.
