COLUMBIA - The Missouri men's basketball team continued its winning ways on Tuesday, taking down Texas A&M 62-58.
The matchup between the Tigers and Aggies featured two of the SEC's hottest teams, with both schools entering the contest with four game win streaks.
Missouri led 29-21 after one half and was able to push its lead to as many as 14 in the second half.
The game was far from over, however, as the Aggies were able to cut Missouri's lead to one with 1:19 remaining in the game.
However, Missouri was able to hold on once more to secure the win, bringing its SEC record to 8-5, and overall record to 18-8.
The Tigers were led by 16 points from back to back SEC player of the week Kassius Robertson. Also scoring in double digits for Mizzou was Jordan Barnett (15) and Jeremiah Tilmon (14).
Mizzou will play again Saturday, when it faces LSU (14-10, 5-7) in Baton Rouge.
