Mired in a slump the past couple of games, Xavier Pinson was due for a breakout performance. Missouri's junior point guard cranked up the intensity Saturday night, scoring 27 points to lead the 19th-ranked Tigers to a 73-64 win over No. 6 Tennessee. It was Missouri's first win in Knoxville since 1972.
