No. 5-ranked Missouri visits Gallagher-Iba on Wednesday, with a 6:30 tip time.

The Tigers won 89-88 at No. 3 Baylor Saturday, improving to 18-1 and 5-1.

REMEMBERING THE 10

With the anniversary of the Jan. 27, 2001 plane crash upcoming, there was a moment of silence before the game to honor the 10 men lost on that basketball trip to Colorado.

The Remember the Ten Run steering committee presented a $20,000 check to OSU Counseling Services at halftime. Also, the committee announced the creation of a scholarship program to support OSU masters and doctoral students enrolled in one of these degree specialties: clinical psychology, counseling psychology, community counseling and marriage and family therapy.

Recipients will receive a $1,000 cash scholarship with $500 awarded in the fall and spring semesters.
