Anderson downplays second return to Missouri


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) _ Arkansas coach Mike Anderson will make his second
return to Missouri on Thursday night. The game tips off at 6:00 on ESPN2.

Anderson, now in his third season with the Razorbacks, coached the Tigers for
five seasons before returning to Arkansas, where he was an assistant for 17
seasons, following the 2010-11 season.

The Razorbacks (15-8, 4-6 Southeastern Conference) suffered a 93-63 defeat in
Anderson's first return to Mizzou Arena last season, and they lost to the Tigers
at home two weeks ago.

Missouri (16-7, 4-6) hasn't won since its win at Arkansas, losing three
straight games and putting its once promising NCAA tournament hopes in jeopardy.

The Tigers have outrebounded the Razorbacks 86-45 over their last two meetings.
