Mark your calendars!
Mizzou Basketball officially announced their full non-conference schedule on Wednesday. We previously knew a lot of the opponents earlier from reports, but the Tigers will start the non-con with their season opener on November 9th against Central Michigan, and they will close out their non-conference portion of their schedule in the Big 12/SEC Challenge on January 29th at Iowa State.
Here’s the full non-con slate:

Out of the 12 games total, only half of them are true home games at Mizzou Arena. And just what a Power Five non-conference schedule should look like, the Tigers have some games that should easily add to the win total, a couple of contests against mid-major opponents, and resume-building opportunities for a chance at a postseason berth. Specifically, that three-game stretch from December 11th through the 22nd — what a gauntlet. This should be quite the challenge for a new look Mizzou basketball squad.
Moving on, Tiger Style was in full effect Wednesday in Ufa, Russia at the Junior World Championships. Two Mizzou wrestlers brought home Gold Medals for the USA from the 74 KG and 92 KG weight class. A huge congrats to the freshmen, Keegan O’Toole and Rocky Elam! You can read more here at MUTigers.com.
