Player of the Night
With only two games featuring ranked teams and six games total, picking last night's outstanding player was a little easier than usual
DeMarre Carroll led all scorers in Missouri's 62-60 victory over Kansas, giving the Jayhawks its first Big 12 loss of the season and ruining a potential battle of the conference unbeatens against Oklahoma. Caroll dropped an efficient 22 on KU, hitting 8 of his 13 and getting to the line 6 times, making five. He also grabbed 7 boards. And the victory means a probable top 15 ranking for the Tigers and leaves them only a game and a half back of first place in the conference.
