Rivalry Breakdown: Kansas-Missouri

One of the saddest casualties of college basketball realignment has been the end of the annual Border War between Kansas and Missouri. When the Tigers left the Big 12 in 2012-13, the conference’s most celebrated rivalry was gone, too.

It did not, however, go quietly, with the two teams facing off in a classic 2012 Mizzou Arena contest that saw the home team (led by Marcus Denmon’s 29 points) erase an eight-point deficit in the final three minutes. And that wasn’t even the best Kansas-Missouri game that season.

Read on to find out about the encore that joined the list of the rivalry’s all-time great matchups, along with the rest of the games, stars and plays that defined a series that (though dormant now) stretches all the way back to 1907.
