Oct. 4, 2013
Columbia, Mo. -
Mizzou Athletics announced that it will host its Black & Gold Game, featuring the men's and women's basketball programs, on Oct. 15 at Mizzou Arena.
Admission to the event is $3 or free with the donation of three canned food items benefitting the Tiger Pantry.
Doors to Mizzou Arena open at 6 p.m. and members of both Mizzou Basketball programs will be on the concourse signing autographs on the 2013-14 team posters. Scrimmages are scheduled to begin at 6:45 p.m.
Parking for the 2013 Black & Gold Game will be free and seating in the Mizzou Arena bowl will be open.
Both Mizzou Basketball programs are coming off postseason appearances in 2012-13. Head Coach Robin Pingeton's club earned a WNIT berth following a 17-win season, which was highlighted by home wins over No. 14 South Carolina and No. 9 Tennessee. The Tigers return their top-two scorers, Bri Kulas (13.8 ppg) and Morgan Eye (12.2), and welcome a vaunted recruiting class. Missouri was one of the country's top three-point shooting clubs last season, hitting a school-record 263 treys.
Head Coach Frank Haith again returns a youthful squad, but will have a pair of double-figure scorers leading the way, junior guard Jabari Brown (13.7) and versatile senior Earnest Ross (10.3). Brown was one of the SEC's top newcomers a year ago and led the Tigers in three-point makes (56), while Ross was the SEC's top bench scorer and is Mizzou's top returning rebounder (5.0). Also joining the roster is a nationally-ranked recruiting class and heralded transfer, Jordan Clarkson, who was a first team All-Conference-USA pick as a sophomore at Tulsa in 2011-12.
