Head Coach Frank Haith enters his first season directing the Tiger program and welcomes back seven seniors, five of which have made three consecutive trips to the NCAA Tournament. Headlining the Tiger returners is first team All-Big 12 selection Marcus Denmon. Denmon is coming off an exciting summer as he competed for Team USA in the 2011 World University Games in China.

In addition, Missouri broke the Mizzou Arena attendance record in 2010-11, averaging 11,112 fans per game over its 18 home contests. That number was up to 13,735 during Big 12 play.
Missouri opens its 2011-12 campaign in Joplin, Mo., with the One State, One Spirit Classic vs. Missouri Southern State University. That game will be televised nationally on ESPNU. The Tigers open their home schedule on Nov. 2 with an exhibition game against Truman State. The regular season opener at Mizzou Arena is slated for Nov. 11 vs. Southeast Missouri State.
