KANSAS CITY, Mo. - S-E-C you later? Not so much for Mizzou.
This fall, the University of Missouri men's basketball team is set to make its first appearance at the Sprint Center since switching from the Big 12 to the Southeastern Conference. The Tigers will take on the University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors on Saturday, Nov. 16, according to the Kansas City Sports Commission.
Missouri last played at the Sprint Center during the 2012 Big 12 championship. They won the tournament after taking down Baylor 90-75.
“We are certainly excited to be taking a game from Mizzou Arena and bringing it to our tremendous fan base in Kansas City,” Mike Alden, MU athletics director, said in a statement Monday. “This is an important first step in getting our programs competing in Kansas City once again, and I know Tiger Nation will be excited to come out and see their team play.”
