Missouri impresses Oklahoma coach

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Oklahoma coach Jeff Capel believes the 15th-ranked Tigers could be a dangerous wild card in the NCAA tournament.

His school is the latest to fall prey to Missouri's relentless game plan.

No. 4 Oklahoma was hounded into 22 turnovers, one off the season worst, in a 73-64 loss on Wednesday that completed Missouri's 18-0 home schedule. The Sooners' point total was by far a season worst for a school averaging 80 points.

Alabama-Birmingham won two games in the 2004 NCAA tournament under Anderson, including an upset over top regional seed Kentucky, and won its opening game in 2005.

Missouri (25-5, 12-3) winds up the regular season on Saturday at Texas A&M.
