I'm also looking dead on at Baylor-Mizzou. We talked about it on my drive to Charlotte from Chapel Hill on Thursday -- the Bears got punked by Kansas this weekend. Frankly, they were punked by Mizzou in Waco in the last meeting. To me, this is Baylor's last chance to show us something. What are you? A glorified AAU team, as our colleague Doug Gottlieb hilariously tweeted Wednesday? Or a legitimate Final Four contender proportionate to your talent? Put up-or-shut up time for Scott Drew's team.

Baylor played zone for 82 percent of the first half and held Missouri to 39 points, which is actually below the Tigers' average this season. But in the second half, Baylor mixed it up evenly with its man and zone defenses. The result? Missouri scored on 16 of 20 plays against the man defense, as compared to just 45 percent against the zone, and ultimately Baylor gave up 50 second-half points and lost the game.

#6 Baylor vs. #4 Missouri - Men's College Basketball - Watch Live Basketball
Prevailing in some close games, including two against top 10 opponents, has kept Missouri in contention for a Big 12 title during its final season in the conference. The fourth-ranked Tigers will try to use that experience in Saturday's rematch with No. 6 Baylor, which will have a final chance for at least the near future to earn its first win at Missouri in 64 years.

I couldn't have said it better myself. Go Bears!
