UCLA, Battle 4 Atlantis highlight Missouri’s basketball schedule
Wednesday, August 29, 2012
Missouri released its full men’s basketball schedule Wednesday, two months to the day before the first exhibition game of the season.
The Tigers open the exhibition season against Northwest Missouri State on Oct. 29, followed by another exhibition game against Missouri Southern on Nov. 4. The regular season begins with a home game against Southern Illinois Edwardsville on Nov. 10.
Other highlights include a game at UCLA on Dec. 28 and the annual game against Illinois on Dec. 22 in St. Louis.
Missouri previously announced it would play in the Battle 4 Atlantis on Thanksgiving weekend in the Bahamas. The Tigers open with Stanford. Other teams in the tournament include Louisville, Northern Iowa, Virginia Commonwealth, Duke, Minnesota, and Memphis.
For the second straight season, the nonconference schedule lacks a marquee home game.
