Missouri to host Iowa St. in final home game for six Tiger seniors

COLUMBIA, Mo. — Missouri coach Frank Haith said he doesn’t recall the exact moment his players bought into what their new coach wanted them to do.

Maybe that’s because the seniors bought in before Haith arrived on campus.

“We just decided before they even signed coach Haith, we put our heads together and we were like, ‘It doesn’t matter who comes in here. We’re going to win basketball games and we’re going to fight for a title next year,’” senior forward Ricardo Ratliffe said. “And that’s what we’re still trying to do.”

The unit that bonded together in adverse times will play on Norm Stewart Court for the final time in their careers as they take on Iowa State at 7 p.m. today for Senior Night (KZOU-TV).
