COLUMBIA, Mo. (Missouri Football App) -- Missouri Basketball announced that its Jan. 5 contest against Bucknell will now tip at 3 p.m. The game was originally scheduled for 6 p.m. and will be televised live on the Mizzou Sports Network.
In addition to the time change, Missouri also announced that the game is a sellout. The Jan. 5 contest will be the final non-conference game of the year for the Tigers and precedes the Jan. 8 Southeastern Conference opener against Alabama, also at Mizzou Arena.
Limited tickets to that Alabama game are available. Fans can purchase tickets online at mutigers.com or by calling the Mizzou Athletics Ticket Office at 1-800-CAT-PAWS (884-PAWS in Mid-Missouri).
Missouri returns to action on Friday at UCLA. The game is scheduled to tip at 9 p.m. CT on ESPN2.
