Mizzou-Arkansas preview (Google Hangout)

The Missouri Tigers are 83-4 in the last five seasons at Mizzou Arena. Part of that success obviously came when Mike Anderson was coaching the Tigers. He said tonight’s matchup between Mizzou and his Arkansas Razorbacks should not be focused on him.

Only Laurence Bowers and Phil Pressey played under Anderson and Frank Haith doesn’t want to lose focus of what this game is all about…a late season SEC matchup…Mizzou vs. Arkansas. A win tonight will give the Tigers a perfect 17-0 record at home this season.

While the coaches don’t want to talk about this matchup that fans have had circled on their calendars ever since the schedule came out, I want to talk about it, and I’m joined by our radio partner from Columbia…Spencer Kane, co-host of “The Closers” afternoon program on Sports Radio 100.1, The Fan.  Spence and I talk about tonight’s game and peek ahead to the rest of the season and March Madness.
