Missouri, which will enter its first season under the direction of new Head Coach Kim Anderson, is 1-0 all-time in the Challenge series with the Big 12, earning an 80-71 win over West Virginia last season at Mizzou Arena. The Tigers are also 4-1 all-time in Challenge games dating back to the Big 12/Pac-10 Hardwood Series from 2007-2010.
