Mizzou Links: Time to catch #SECbasketballfever (and watch Mad Max pick up women)

Missouri's 2014-15 SEC basketball slate begins on Thursday with a visit from an LSU team with a hell of an interior game. Also: Shane Ray's NFL announcement was moved to Wednesday, and Max Copeland knows how to pick up chicks.

The Trib (Courtside View): Strange for Anderson getting ready for SEC slate (and other notes)

"The SEC Network’s a wonderful thing. You can watch them every night. Somebody’s on. So I’ve had a chance to watch at least parts of every team."

His studying will be more extensive now that he’s getting ready to play them and doesn’t have to worry about readying his team for any more nonconference foes.

Since Saturday night — after the Tigers (6-7) wrapped up their nonconference schedule with a 72-60 victory over Lipscomb — he’s had his eyes trained on LSU (11-2), the opponent in Thursday night’s SEC opener at 6 p.m. at Mizzou Arena. No surprisingly, he’s found himself focusing most on the frontcourt tandem of sophomores Jordan Mickey and Jarell Martin, who’ve combined to average 34.5 points and 19.2 rebounds.

"It’s going to be tough," Anderson said. "It’ll be tough for us just because those guys, not only they’re big, but they’re very mobile, they’re very agile, and I think for us to beat them we’ve got to do a great job on the boards."
