Harris-Stowe State is 1-0 this season, defeating Midland Lutheran College 65-47 on Oct. 30. Junior guard Terry Hollins led the NAIA member Hornets with 18 points, five assists and five steals.

“We know that Mizzou is a very wellcoached team that plays extremely hard and fast,” Harris-Stowe State head coach Phillip Hunt said. “We must play confident and accept the challenge of playing a good team. That’s all I could ask for.”

Harris-Stowe State, located in St. Louis, was 16-16 last season.

This is the first of two exhibition games for Missouri, which will host Arkansas-Fort Smith on Nov. 12.
