Mizzou has released the 23-page "Mizzou Basketball News and Notes 2009-10" highlighting the Oral Roberts game on Wednesday.
Some of the interesting tidbits found in the release:
- Series: Missouri leads 5-0; last on Nov. 30, 2008, 92-83 win for Mizzou in Columbia, Mo.
- Wednesday will be a Homecoming for Anderson and his wife Marcheita ... Marcheita is from a small town just outside of Tulsa and att ended high school in Bixby and of course Coach Anderson played (and coached) collegiately at Tulsa for Nolan Richardson ... In fact Richardson is back in Tulsa coaching the new WNBA team, formerly the Detroit Shock.
- Missouri is playing its fi rst non-conference road game against a team from a conference other than the Big Ten, SEC and Pac-10 since traveling to a very good Davidson club (82-73 loss) during the 2005-06 season.
- Missouri has enjoyed great success in the state of Oklahoma since Mike Anderson's arrival in Columbia ... The Tigers are 5-2 all-ti me, with a pair of wins at Oklahoma State and of course the 2009 Big 12 Tournament Championship.
