  • Preview: Valparaiso at Missouri

    After beginning the Kim Anderson era with a stunning loss to an in-state foe, Missouri hopes to bounce back Sunday when it hosts Valparaiso in a non-conference matchup. The Tigers struggled in just about every facet in their new coach and former star's debut with his alma mater, falling 69-61 to UMKC on Friday. They might have a tougher opponent Sunday with the Crusaders coming to town on the strength of a 90-76 season-opening win over East Tennessee State on Friday. Anderson, who won an NCAA Division II title at Central Missouri last season, was brought in following Frank Haith's departure for Tulsa in hopes of rebuilding the program and restoring a link to legendary coach Norm Stewart, but that project is off to an inauspicious start. "We spent the whole night on our heels. It seemed like every time we got close in the second half, we couldn't make the right play," Anderson told reporters. "The good thing about college basketball is that you have one day to prepare and if you go feel sorry for yourself, you'll get beat again." The Crusaders should have Missouri's full attention, as they were impressive in winning their opener behind huge nights from sophomore big man Alec Peters and junior-college transfer guard Darien Walker.
