Meanwhile, Missouri takes it on the road, against Vanderbilt, a Southeastern Conference team with some good players and tradition. Alas, Missouri plays sluggishly until the last 10 minutes, and it's furious rally falls short. MU loses to Vandy 89-83. However, I would bet that Mizzou's young players found the tough road game a terrific learning experience and the team is closer now.
Lessons and work that will pay off in March.
