Head Coach Frank Haith announced a series with the Arizona Wildcats
Dec. 12, 2012
Columbia, Mo. - The University of Missouri and the University of Arizona announced a two-year agreement for a home-and-home college basketball series starting at the McKale Center for the 2015-16 season.
As part of the agreement Mizzou will travel to Tucson, Ariz., for a game on Sunday, Dec. 13, 2015, and Arizona will face the Tigers at Mizzou Arena on Saturday, Dec. 10, 2016.
"This is a great series and will generate the type of national exposure fans and programs want early in the college basketball season," Head Coach Frank Haith said. "I have so much respect for Sean (Miller) and the Arizona program and when you get two national brands playing in on-campus settings it's great for all of college basketball."
Missouri and Arizona have twice met on the hardwood. The most recent meeting was March 26, 1994, in the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament in Los Angeles, Calif. Arizona won that game, 92-72. The first meeting was a 76-73 Mizzou win on Dec. 29, 1984, in Honolulu, Hawaii, in the Hawaii Pacific Invitational.
Missouri will play at least two Pac-12 schools this season. The Tigers topped Stanford, 78-70, in the opening round of the 2012 Battle 4 Atlantis and will travel to UCLA on Dec. 28, 2012, to begin a home-and-home series with the Bruins. UCLA will return the game to Mizzou Arena next season.
