“It’s a new season, everybody is 0-0,” Missouri coach Mike Anderson said Monday. “Nobody’s playing on their home floor anymore. Let the games begin.”

The games begin Wednesday night for the Tigers (22-9), who will take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders (13-18) in the opening round of the Big 12 Tournament at the Sprint Center in Kansas City (8:20 p.m., KZOU-TV).

Anderson is more than ready for the postseason to begin for Missouri, the No. 6 seed in the tournament.
