The University of Kansas men's basketball teams defeated Missouri 93-87 in an exhibition game Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017, at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. Called the “Showdown for Relief,” the game raised money to aid victims of recent hurricanes that hit the Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The Kansas City Star's Aaron Reiss and Alex Schiffer analyzed the Tigers' performance in their 93-87 loss to Kansas on Sunday at the Sprint Center in a one-day renewal of their rivalry dubbed the Showdown for Relief, a charity exhibition. They also broke down highlights and answered questions.
Missouri football coach Barry Odom was encouraged by his team’s win over Idaho, but he said the Tigers would be without running back Damarea Crockett “for a while” and still need to make progress on third-down defense.

One of Graham's recipes is a cinnamon bun made with thinly sliced bananas and a sweet sauce with dates and raisins.
