Missouri head basketball coach Cuonzo Martin is trying to change the culture of the Tigers' program.

He has Missouri headed in the right direction. The Tigers are 17-8, 7-5 SEC this season.

In coach Martin's mind, Missouri is one of the nation's top 68 teams.

"When you talk about one of the better teams in the country, that's not a debate," Martin said. "We are one of those teams."
