The Big 12 Tournament (or, as I like to call it, "The Cowboy Tournament") sees Missou riding off into the sunset after a besting by Nebraska. Guard Ryan Anderson led the charge for a 75-60 Huskers victory over the Tigers with sixteen points and nine rebounds, which means Doc Sadler's (note: not a licensed doctor) boys will progress to take on Texas A&M tomorrow in Kansas City (note: not in Kansas). The chips will be stacked against the boys in red as they take on the Aggies -- and we all know that there's only one time of the year when the student body of Texas A&M stops looking inside cow rectums and starts lovin' basketball, and that's when March tourney play begins. They take it seriously, and as a four-seed may have the Huskers' number tomorrow. You're just going to have to not-sleep and obsess endlessly about this matchup until tomorrow, America.
Elsewhere in the last hour, the MEAC wrapped up a first round game in Coppin St vs. Maryland Eastern Shore, proving 64-58 that Shorebirds are scrappier than Eages (not in real life - so calm down, bird scientists!). However, in typical MEAC fashion, it's a half hour after the game and still no box scores are available, so it's entirely possible that while no one watched this game on television, no one watched it in person either. You know as much as I do about this game, America. Apparently, unless you played in this game, you don't know anything about it.
