Mizzou Arena, Columbia, Missouri
No. 12 Missouri caps perfect home record with upset of No. 5 Oklahoma
COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Three days earlier, Missouri was awful. At home, the Tigers achieved perfection.
• The Tigers improved to 12-3 in the Big 12 (and into a tie with Oklahoma for second place) and established a new school record for wins in Big 12 play.
• Mizzou finished the season 18-0 at Mizzou Arena. It is the first time the Tigers have gone undefeated at home since 1993-94.
• The Sooners lost for the third time in their last four games despite 16 points and 21 rebounds from Blake Griffin.
• Griffin's 21 rebounds give him 412 for the season and he passed Michael Beasley for the second most single-season boards in Big 12 history. Griffin needs just 11 more rebounds to tie Drew Gooden's record.
