Admission to the game is free and seating will be general admission.
Mizzou will return 82-percent of its SEC and school record-breaking three-point shooting from last season. The Tigers made 263 treys last year and bring back 215 of those makes. Morgan Eye led the team and the league with 112 threes last season and finished the year as the NCAA National Statistical leader averaging 3.5 made per game.
Sophomore guard Lianna Doty finished fourth on the all-time single-season assists record to conclude the 2012-13 season. Her 151 assists last season left her 82 shy of Dee-Dee Polk's all-time record that was set during the 1983-84 season.
The Tigers welcome five newcomers to this season's squad; Redshirt senior Tania Jackson (Kansas), redshirt freshman Davionna Holmes (Louisville), freshman Kayla McDowell (Cincinnati, Ohio), freshman Jordan Frericks (Quincy, Ill.), and freshman Sierra Michaelis (Mercer, Mo.).
