According to multiple reports on Thursday, Missouri coach Frank Haith has verbally accepted an offer to become the head basketball coach at the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma. 

Tulsa World had reported that Haith is a “very solid front-runner” and was expected to meet with Tulsa President Steadman Upham and athletic and athletic director Derrick Gragg. A short time later ESPN and CBSsports learned he has verbally accepted an offer to join Tulsa.

A University of Missouri student fan group was kicked out of its second straight men's basketball game over what school officials call a pattern of inappropriate chants.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that members of The Antlers were ejected from Mizzou Arena on Monday night early in the second half of Missouri's 78-64 win over IUPUI.

Winning the Big 12 tournament was not quite enough to earn a Number One NCAA tournament seed for Missouri.

Missouri’s men’s basketball game against Kansas on Saturday was the 267th time the teams have played.  But it could be one of the last times the long time rivals will compete since MU is moving to the Southeastern Conference next year.  Opposing petitions have sprung up in Kansas and Missouri to either save or end the Border Showdown.
