No. 4 Kansas’ thrilling win over No. 3 Missouri, in photos

Feb 26, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

The 267th Border War wasn’t a perfect game — questionable fouls, odd decisions popped up at the end of regulation and overtime — but there’s no denying that by completing a 19-point rally against No. 4 Missouri, No. 3 Kansas did pull off one of the most memorable games of the season.

So why not remember it visually?

(Of course, there are plenty of columns that give the game its due, starting with this, this and this. And while you’re at it, vote here if you think it was the game of the season.)
