MIZZOU HOOPSTERS IN FLORIDA
The Mizzou basketball program, which has struggled mightily in coach Kim Anderson’s first two seasons, came oh-so-close to upsetting No. 11 Xavier in Orlando on Thursday, losing by a point in overtime. The Tigers then lost to Davidson by 15 on Friday. They play their final game in Florida on Sunday.
