COLUMBIA — When Missouri men's basketball coach Mike Anderson walked in for a press conference on Friday at Mizzou Arena, he had a smile on his face.

It was the look of satisfaction.

For the second straight season, the Missouri men’s basketball team (23-11, 10-6) advanced past the first round of the NCAA Tournament. A year after making the Elite Eight, the No. 10 seed Tigers lost 68-59 to No. 2 seed West Virginia in the second round. However, Anderson he considered it a successful season because of his team's lack of experience.

“We were a young basketball team whether people know it or not,” Anderson said. “So for our guys to put together 23 games — they won 54 in the last two years — I think winning is a habit, so hopefully they got that habit of wanting to win and know what it takes.”
