Missouri releases hoops schedule

Missouri released its basketball schedule Friday, with a heavy lean towards home games at the new Paige Sports Arena. Look inside for a glimpse at the Tigers' upcoming opponents.

Missouri will play up to a record 20 home games in their inaugural season at Paige Sports Arena, with the regular season slated to tip off against Brown as part of the Guardians Classic on Nov. 15.

The Tigers also have Arkansas, Indiana and Gonzaga slated for visits to the PSA. Missouri will only play one true road non-coference game, at UNLV on Feb. 9.

Missouri welcomes Iowa State to open Big 12 play on Jan. 8, while, in what is fast becoming a tradition, the Tigers will face Kansas at home to wrap up the regular season.
