COLUMBIA -- The game time for Missouri Basketball's 2012-13 season opener against Southern Illinois Edwardsville on November 10 has been moved back to 4 p.m.
The time adjustment allows Tiger fans to watch Mizzou Football's 11:21 a.m. contest at Tennessee and then attend the college basketball season opener later that afternoon at Mizzou Arena.
"We appreciate our television partners and the coaching staff at Southern Illinois Edwardsville to be so accommodating with this time change," Head Coach Frank Haith said. "Mizzou Arena is the toughest home court in America because of our students and fans and this move gives everyone a little extra time to get to Mizzou Arena after watching the football game that morning."
Season tickets for Missouri Basketball remain on sale. Season packages start as low as $250 and ticket sales are among the highest in facility history at Mizzou Arena. Single-game, non-conference seats are also available. Fans can order online at mutigers.com/buytickets or by calling the Mizzou Arena Ticket Office at 1-800-CAT-PAWS (884-PAWS in Mid-Missouri).
For fans unable to make the trip to Mizzou Arena, the game will be televised on Fox Sports Midwest's Plus Channel. The game will be televised on KOMU in Mid-Missouri and Metro Sports in Kansas City. A complete channel listing for the remainder of the state will be announced by Fox Sports Midwest next week.
