Graduated from the University of Nebraska. Sure Kansas defeated Missouri, 93-87, Sunday afternoon before a sellout crowd of 18,951 in Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri, but raising in excess of $1.75 million for recent hurricane victims is what took center stage. The Tigers will look to get a win against their former Big 12 rival.

The Showdown for Relief came to fruition on October 13 as an opportunity to raise funds for hurricane relief efforts that have occurred recently in the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. "It's a great gesture. We are not going to do what is best for Missouri or Missouri fans, but if it is best for us to play than we will", said Self.

"I think it was a great night for the city of Kansas City", Martin said.

Fans of the two programs split almost 19,000 seats at the Sprint Center, raising more than $1 million in ticket sales.

The rest of Kansas' scorers made a big impact in the second half in support of Graham.

In the second half, with the game tied at 59 with just over 13 minutes remaining, Kansas took over, going on a 20-7 run over the next seven minutes and built its largest lead of the contest at 83-66. "I thought it was a great atmosphere". "We're not interested in what's best for Missouri or best for Missouri fans". I admit, I had butterflies.

Kansas leads the all-time series of regular-season and postseason games against Missouri 173-95.

The Tigers were paced by heralded freshman forward Michael Porter, who scored a team-high 21 points while adding eight rebounds.

"I'm kind of putting this loss on myself", Porter said. "So a lot of (negative) things that we learned about our team that we've been saying all along".

Graham's lob pass and successful conversion into a dunk by fellow guard Lagerald Vick made it a 17-point margin with 6:37 to play, and while the Tigers cut the deficit to six points on a 3-pointer from Terrence Phillips with 26 seconds left, Graham and teammates made their free throws down the stretch to finish out the victory in the first contest of any kind played between the two programs since February 25, 2012.
