KANSAS CITY — Jeremiah Tilmon did anything but ease his way into collegiate basketball.He grabbed the opportunity with not one, but two hands. Witness his two-handed put-back dunk that energized Missouri fans behind the basket.Tilmon's dunks contributed to his 10-point day in which he made all five shots he attempted.

Not complicated: Sunday's Border War was too sweet to turn away from again

Missouri honors past on homecoming

Missouri gave two prominent nods to its football past for its 106th homecoming game.The first was a black helmet with no stripes, a black facemask and a white block “M.” A solid white “M” adorned the Tigers’ black helmets through multiple design changes from 1971-95.

Okwuegbunam scores three touchdowns in Missouri rout

When Idaho defenders look back on their 68-21 loss to Missouri, one play likely will replay in their minds.Well, not just one play — more like the same play the Tigers ran successfully over and over again.It’s a cadence anyone who watched Saturday’s game could probably recite.
