Basketball Team Info
Coming off of another intense season loaded with incredible moments, the Tigers are back for another
year loaded with highlight-reel dunks, eye-popping blocked shots and intense moments that will have fans jumping out of their
seats in no time. The Missouri Tigers boast one of the best basketball programs in Division I, and with that kind of reputation
the team has naturally seen some great players hit the court over the years. One of the best players in the history of the
program was Anthony Peeler, a sweet-shooting guard that went on to play in the NBA. Other notable Missouri players to move
on to the pro game include Kareem Rush and Larry Drew, and you never know when the next all-time great player is going to

clashes that you'll have to see first-hand to believe. These are some of the best amateur athletes in the entire world, though
that's something that you need to see for yourself to truly appreciate. The pros are great to watch as well, but there's something

different level of intensity and excitement that you just can't find anywhere else. When the game is still very much up in
the air and the Tigers are looking to put an exclamation point on a huge win, it won't be hard to get swept away by the excitement.
Missouri Tigers Basketball History
It really all got started for the Tigers back in 1918, the year they won their
first conference championship. They would add plenty more titles to that one over the years since, and in recent years they've
become regular fixtures in the SEC championship game and even in the year-end NCAA Tournament. Their crowning achievement,
as far as the Tournament is concerned, is making the Elite Eight a handful of times, including in 2002 and 2009, though they're
always threatening to do it all over again. With their eyes on the Tournament and a team that seems to have the sky for a
limit, there's a reason there's plenty of excitement around Columbia, Missouri heading into the season.
Tigers Basketball Trivia
The Tigers have had just one player become a three-time All-American. Can you name the player?
find the Tiger who was an All-American three different times, you have to go all the way back to the 1920s, as guard Herb
Bunker was a dominant force on his way to becoming an All-American from 1921 through 1923. Though the Tigers have had plenty
of All-Americans since then, and several multiple winners, Bunker still remains the only Tiger to actually pull off the feat
three times, solidifying him as one of the top players in the history of the University of Missouri basketball program.
