Changes coming on several fronts as Mizzou enters pivotal third season under Kim Anderson | The Kansas City Star

Tigers athletic director Mack Rhoades is on the record saying he expects marked improvement in Anderson’s third season. For his part, Anderson understands such pressure comes with the job.

"Any coach has urgency, and maybe we have a little more urgency, but Mack and I have had additional conversations since we talked last and I think we’re on the same page," Anderson said. "I agree with him that, at the end of this year, we can’t be looking and saying, ‘We’re three or four years away before we’re relevant again.’"

• Forward Russell Woods, the team’s only senior, is getting daily treatment for what Anderson described as a chronic knee issue. He’s still able to practice and work out with his teammates.

Missouri last week learned it would be allowed to take a graduate transfer again. The Tigers were thought to be barred from doing so by SEC rules for a period of three years after Hawaii transfer Keith Shamburger didn’t complete all of the work required of him while a graduate transfer in Anderson’s first season.

Meanwhile, Mizzou women's basketball adds former standout Bri Kulas to the staff. Kulas was the 28th pick in the 2014 WNBA Draft by the San Antonio Stars. She also played professionally in Spain.

"I am excited and thankful for the opportunity given by Coach Pingeton to work with her staff as a graduate student manager," Kulas said. "I was fortunate enough to play at Mizzou for two years and I am happy to be back with my Mizzou family. I have great respect for what Coach Pingeton and her staff have done with the program and cannot wait to absorb my surroundings and learn as much as possible as I continue my coaching career."
