KANSAS CITY -- The Mizzou Tigers men's basketball team played their first game of the Big 12 tournament Thursday night against the Oklahoma State Cowboys, one of three teams that beat the Tigers during the regular season.

Thursday would be a different story, partly because of a hand injury to the Cowboys freshman Le'Bryan Nash, who scored 27 points against the Tigers in the two teams' first meeting on January 25 in Stillwater. Thursday, Nash could only watch from the bench as his team tried to pull of the upset.

The Tigers started the game with their foot on the pedal, and they never took it off. Kim English scored 9 points in the first ten minutes of the game giving the Tigers an early 25-9 lead.

Phil Pressey added 8 assists and 5 steals in the first half. Pressey finished the game with 12 assists, the most ever in a Big 12 quarterfinal game.

Mizzou shot 53 percent in the first half while Oklahoma State shot 30 percent. Everything was going right for the Tigers, and they finished the first half up by 25 points, 49-24.

The second half was much of the same.

Michael Dixon joined Marcus Denmon and Kim English, as he became the 43rd player in Mizzou basketball history to score 1,000 points in a season.

Later in the second half, Kim English and Marcus Denmon became only the third pair of four year teammates in school history to each score 1,500 points.

English lead the Tigers with 27 points, just two off his career high.

As a team, Missouri shot 59 percent from the field, and 41 percent from behind the arc.

Cowboy's senior guard Keiton Page scored 22 points. Freshman Brian Williams added 21 points and 8 rebounds.

The Cowboys cut the lead to 14 points late in the second half, but the early Tiger lead proved insurmountable. The Tigers defeated the Cowboys, 88-70.

The second-seeded Missouri Tigers will lace up their sneakers once more tomorrow night against either sixth-seeded Texas or third-seeded Iowa State at the Sprint Center at 9pm CT.
