Missouri beats the Kentucky for first time in school history

  Missouri improved its NCAA tournament hopes with a huge home win over Kentucky.

Missouri took down Kentucky on Saturday by a score of 69-60 in a game that could wind up being huge for the Tigers’ NCAA tournament hopes. But that wasn’t the only reason the victory was significant for Missouri.

It was Mizzou’s first win over Kentucky in 11 tries. In the 10 prior games Missouri lost to UK, the Wildcats’ average point differential was a whopping plus-17.6.

Duke, Kansas and Kentucky lost on the same day for the first time since 2005. Jordan Barnett and Kassius Robertson led the way for the Tigers with 16 points each, while Jontay Porter chipped in 13 off the bench.

Cuonzo Martin is making huge strides in Columbia. Kentucky may be having a down year by its standards, but that was a statement win for Missouri.
