Earnest Ross and the Tigers host West Virginia on Dec. 5 on ESPN2.
Aug 13, 2013
Columbia, Mo. -
ESPN and the Southeastern Conference announced television network designations for the inaugural Big 12/SEC Challenge on Tuesday and Missouri Basketball will host West Virginia on Dec. 5 at 6 p.m. CT on ESPN2.
Mizzou and West Virginia have met twice on the hardwood, most recently on March 21, 2010, when the Tigers fell to the Final Four-bound Mountaineers (68-59) in the Second Round of the NCAA Tournament in Buffalo, N.Y. The first meeting between the two programs also came in NCAA Tournament play with Mizzou earning an 89-78 win in Greensboro, N.C., in the first round.
That contest starts a furious week of games for Mizzou. The Tigers will cap the week by hosting UCLA two days later on Dec. 7. That game time and television network designation will be announced by the Southeastern Conference later this summer.
