MU Basketball Rebounding
A big key to the Tiger's start is the team defense. Thursday night, Mizzou forced 24 turnovers and had 17 steals, six of them from Stefhon Hannah.
Arkansas Head Coach, Stan Heath commented, "Seventeen steals is an unbelievable number. I've never seen that before since I've been coaching. So, that's a huge number."
It was a special win for Coach Anderson, seeing as he spent 17 years as an Assistant at Arkansas.MU passed its toughest test so far this season by beating a Southeastern Conference team, and they did it on national TV.
Anderson explained, "No one knows about our basketball team and I guess the nation got a chance to see that we have something."
Keon Lawrence, Guard for Mizzou, said, "I think I brought more energy than I brought this whole season, and I think I'm going to keep it up."
Keon scored 14, and fellow Guard and teammate, Matt Lawrence, hit five 3-pointers.
Lawrence further explained, "Coach Anderson will tell you the next game's the most important game, so he takes it one at a time and that's what we try to do, too."
They'll try to do it again Sunday against Evansville.
