MUtigers.com: One State, One Spirit Classic Presented by Leggett & Platt
Missouri Southern State University and the University of Missouri, in conjunction with the Joplin tornado relief campaign, will participate in the One State, One Spirit Classic Presented by Leggett & Platt. The basketball exhibition game received NCAA approval and will be played on Sunday Oct. 30 at Missouri Southern' s Leggett & Platt Athletic Center in Joplin, Mo. …
"While the state of Missouri is making every resource available to help the people, families and businesses cope with the immediate aftermath of the devastating Joplin tornado, our overall efforts must be long-term to match the many months of recovery ahead," Missouri Governor Jay Nixon said. "The Missouri Tiger men's basketball team is the state's premier college basketball program. Having new coach Frank Haith take his team to Joplin for this exhibition game with Missouri Southern, with the proceeds to benefit tornado recovery, ensures that our efforts on behalf of storm victims are committed and ongoing,"
The game's title sponsor will be Leggett & Platt. One of Southwest Missouri's largest employers (headquartered in Carthage, Mo.), Leggett & Platt has been a visible presence in Joplin and surrounding communities for 128 years and many of its employees suffered personal loss in the May 22 storm.
