Mizzou To Face Texas A&M At SEC Tournament

Antonio Barton scored 16 points and Jarnell Stokes had a double-double Saturday as Tennessee trounced Missouri 72-45 to win its fourth straight game and boost its NCAA tournament hopes. Tennessee (20-11, 11-7 SEC) hasn't trailed at any point during its winning streak. Its last three games have been decided by an average margin of 31 points. Barton shot 4 of 7 from 3-point range against Missouri and has now gone 13 of 22 from behind the arc over his last three games. Stokes had 15 points and 10 rebounds. Jordan McRae added 11 points. Jordan Clarkson had 13 points for Missouri (21-10, 9-9). Both Tennessee and Missouri are perceived to be on the NCAA tournament bubble, raising the stakes in this regular-season finale for both teams. Missouri had beaten Tennessee 75-70 on Feb. 15 in Columbia.

Missouri Basketball will open Southeastern Conference Tournament action on Thursday at Noon CT against Texas A&M at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. It's the second time the Tigers and Aggies will meet in a span of eight days. Missouri topped Texas A&M at home on Senior Night, 57-56, on March 5. Missouri and Texas A&M also met in last season's SEC Tournament in Nashville, with the Tigers grabbing a 62-50 win. Missouri will be looking for its third consecutive win over Texas A&M, its longest winning streak since winning six straight from 1998-2002.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
