Mike Anderson can achieve a milestone tonight when the Missouri Tigers host the Northern Illinois Huskies at Mizzou Arena in Columbia.

Anderson is 99-47 in his fifth season as head coach of the Tigers heading into the 7 p.m. contest. He has an overall record of 188-88 as a head coach, including his time at Alabama-Birmingham.

The Tigers (11-1, ranked No. 9) are off to their best start since also winning 11 of their first 12 games in the 1991-92 season. Missouri's 75-64 win over Illinois last Wednesday in St. Louis was its sixth straight.
