Mizzou Basketball History

The Tigers kick off the 2017-2018 season with new head coach Cuonzo Martin and assistant coach Michael Porter Sr. The Tigers play in Mizzou Arena located in Columbia, MO. It’s time for a fresh start and Mizzou basketball is ready to take on any team that comes their way. However, Mizzou went through its changes from seasons past, just as every team does. Let’s take a look at the history of Mizzou basketball.

Originally, the Mizzou Tigers held their own in the Big 12 conference. However, in the 2012-2013 season, NCAA realigned teams and Mizzou transferred into the SEC conference. That year, Mizzou made it to the NCAA D1 Men’s Basketball Tournament ranked as No. 9 seed. Prior to 2013, the Tigers made it to the tournament 26 times, with five consecutive years from 2009-2013.

With a great team comes great players. The following players have retired jerseys hanging in Mizzou Arena to forever remember each of them:

  • Bill Stauffer, #43
  • Norm Stewart, #22
  • Willie Smith, #30
  • Steve Stipanovich, #40
  • Jon Sundvold, #20
  • Doug Smith, #34
