Head coach Kim Anderson returns to the Hearnes Center as the Mizzou men’s basketball team plays William Jewell College in an exhibition matchup, with tip-off set for 7 p.m. Doors to the event open at 5:30 p.m. and admission and parking is free for all fans.
The Tigers enter 2014 seeking their seventh consecutive 20-win season. Mizzou returns two starters in Jonathan Williams III and Ryan Rosburg and welcomes back key contributors Wes Clark and Keanau Post. Post, a 6-foot-11 senior forward, highlighted the annual Black and Gold scrimmage with 14 points and five rebounds. The Tigers scored 42 of their combined 70 points in the paint.
Anderson, a former Mizzou post player himself, will be back on the sidelines at the Hearnes Center. He won 77 games while playing under Tiger legend Norm Stewart from 1973-77. After spending more than a decade at the helm of Central Missouri and capturing last year’s Division II National Championship, Anderson returns to his alma-mater to coach in familiar territory.
Following Wednesday’s contest, the Tigers will wrap up exhibition play at Mizzou Arena Nov. 8 against UMSL and begin the regular season Nov. 14 against UMKC.
