Both teams are desperate for conference wins to build their cases for making the NCAA tournament this year.  Kentucky's case, more so than Missouri's, considering their road thus far, is a bit more challenging due to the season ending loss of their star center Nerlens Noel, who tore his ACL versus Florida last week.

I feel Mizzou’s momentum from its Florida win will help them beat Kentucky. Here are my five rea...
