MU Struggling at Home
"We probably had what you call a hangover from the Kansas State game. Confidence is big in basketball, so right now that is something this team is battling with, is getting their confidence," said MU Head Coach Mike Anderson
Mizzou Arena sold out again to see the Tigers face Nebraska, but the energy in the building was not the same as it was a week earlier against Texas Tech.
However, the players say it isn't the fans' fault.
"We didn't give them anything to cheer about really," said junior forward Marshall Brown. "We never gave them a chance to get into it, so we can't expect them to get into it if we don't give them anything to get into it about."
"I think it was more us than the crowd. When you play this way, you have to give them a reason to get involved," added Anderson.
Despite last Saturday's disappointment, fans hope the energy will be high this coming Saturday, when Missouri takes on the rival Kansas Jayhawks in the third consecutive sell out at Mizzou Arena.
The Tigers play at Iowa State Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m. on KOMU.
