VIDEO: Kim Anderson at SEC Tipoff

Watch first-year Missouri head coach Kim Anderson explain how this year's Tigers should be different and more balanced than last year's edition.

CHARLOTTE – One of a few rookie coaches in the Southeastern Conference, Kim Anderson of Missouri addressed reporters Wednesday at SEC Tipoff.

He touched on a number of topics, primarily how his Mizzou squad in 2014-15 won't resemble last year's group under Frank Haith.

"I think our team’s going to be different than that team," Anderson explained. "That team was heavily reliant on three people – Jabari Brown, Jordan Clarkson and Earnest Ross. That's the three guys who scored double-figures, 14 to 21 points, whatever it was, and two of them are in the NBA.

"Our team, I think, will be more balanced. I would be surprised if we weren't more balanced. I think we have a team that if they learn how to play together, we have a chance to be pretty good. It'll be different. The big guys will get more touches, should get more touches. Guards are still going to get their shots, handle the ball and make plays, but I think we'll be more balanced."

Watch the video below for more from Anderson, who led off discussing just how much P.R. work - and other non-basketball functions - goes into being the head coach at this level.
