Missouri Basketball will look for its third consecutive win on Saturday as the Tigers host the Kentucky Wildcats for the first time in series history. Missouri and Kentucky played to an overtime game (90-83 UK win) last year at Rupp Arena and the Tigers will look for their first win all-time against the Wildcats.
Head Coach Frank Haith will continue to wear his sneakers on Saturday to help promote awareness for Coaches vs. Cancer…Haith is on the leadership council for Coaches vs. Cancer, which was of course co-founded by Mizzou’s Norm Stewart. Of course, he may be onto something. Mizzou is 2-0 with Haith wearing the sneakers.
Mizzou has been very good at home under Haith and is 43-2 at Mizzou Arena since Haith took over prior to the 2011-12 season. The Tigers are 40-5 at home in league play (SEC and Big 12) since the 2008-09 season and the Tigers have never dropped more than two home games in a year during that stretch.
Join me, Will and Matt from KTGR Columbia for our weekly breakdown of Mizzou basketball, plus see what Will is doing with his hair that has the ladies going crazy!
