Columbia, Mo. - Mizzou Athletics announced that its Oct. 25, 2013, men's basketball exhibition opener against Oklahoma City University would be played at Hearnes Center. The game time has been set for 7 p.m.
Tickets for the game will be free to the general public and part of the celebration includes a 20-year reunion for the undefeated (14-0) 1993-94 Big Eight Champions.
"We are excited about the opportunity to return to Hearnes Center for one final game and it gives us an opportunity to celebrate the rich history of our program, honor one of our most celebrated teams and play the game on our 102nd Homecoming weekend," Mizzou Director of Athletics Mike Alden said. "Our home court advantage at Mizzou Arena is second-to-none (84-4 since 2008-09), but this is a fun way to stay connected to those who helped lay the foundation for our current program and allow some folks coming back that weekend to mix the past with the present and our future."
More details on the game will be finalized in the coming weeks, but the 2013-14 Tigers will wear throwback uniforms designed after that 1993-94 season.
"A game like this is a great way to honor the history of our program and have some fun with our fans and alumni on homecoming weekend," Head Coach Frank Haith said. "Coach Stewart has been incredible to me and my family and after talking with so many of our former players and our administration, this was a great way to honor that special group. The enthusiasm is there, the support is there and this is a great way to start our 2013-14 season."
While many members of that 1993-94 program have been reached, anyone involved with that team is encouraged to reach out to Carly Northup in Mizzou Athletics (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Jed Frost (OneBagOneStory@ICloud.com).
Mizzou also announced it will play its second exhibition game on Nov. 1 vs. former Tiger student-athlete and coach, Kim Anderson, and Central Missouri. Anderson was an assistant coach on that Tiger staff and the 1993-94 team opened the year with a 69-66 win over the Mules in Columbia.
