Mike Anderson was hired as Missouri's men's basketball coach yesterday, taking over after Quin Snyder's resignation last month. Anderson, who led Alabama-Birmingham to a 24-9 record and an NCAA tournament appearance this season, is the first black head coach hired on a permanent basis in a major sport at Missouri. He is a former assistant to Nolan Richardson at Arkansas and played for Richardson at Tulsa. As coach at UAB for four years, Anderson put together an 89-41 record with three NCAA tourney appearances.

Just as it did last season and the one before that, Missouri brought its A-game out of the cobwebs for Kansas. Playing with a dislocated shoulder, sixth man Tyron Lee hit two free throws with 11.4 seconds to play as the host Tigers upset the No. 3 Jayhawks for the third straight time at home, winning, 74-73, last night. "They're a top 10 team when we play them, in this building at least," Kansas guard Ryan Robertson said. "It's unfortunate for them that they can't duplicate that performance every time they step out on the floor.

Alabama thought it would have to contend with Missouri's towering twins in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament. With one of them suspended, 6-10 center Roy Rogers easily sent the Crimson Tide into the third round. Rogers had 20 points, 13 rebounds and nine blocks last night as Alabama beat the visiting Tigers, 72-49. The Tide advanced to tomorrow night's game at South Carolina, which beat Vanderbilt, 80-70. The winner heads to the tournament semifinals in New York.

It wasn't as if Memphis coach John Calipari had forgotten what freshman guard Tyreke Evans could do once the season started. Evans, who played at American Christian Academy in Aston, came to Memphis as one of the nation's most-heralded recruits. Still, Calipari was cautious about asking Evans to step into the point-guard spot vacated by last year's freshman sensation, Derrick Rose, who led the Tigers to the national championship game against Kansas and then became the top pick in the NBA draft.

Rooster Cogburn had it. So does Missouri, perhaps the ugliest, least appreciated, most maligned No. 1 seed ever to lurch within one victory of the Final Four. But true grit can mask a great many flaws, as the Tigers did in their 98-88, overtime victory over fourth-seeded Syracuse last night in an NCAA West Regional semifinal game at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. Missouri plays Arizona tomorrow afternoon for the West championship and a ticket to the Final Four in Charlotte, N.C. "The main thing is that our team has a lot of grit," Missouri coach Norm Stewart said after the latest in a long line of improbable successes.

Two picture-perfect, one-handed lobs by Aaron Miles set up easy baskets by Christian Moody and J.R. Giddens, and all of a sudden there seemed little doubt that No. 3 Kansas would rally to beat Missouri. Giddens' bucket gave Kansas a nine-point lead - after trailing by eight at halftime. It got the crowd screaming and sent the host Jayhawks rolling to a 73-61 victory over their archrival last night. "I was sitting on the bench, but I was yelling my lungs out," said Wayne Simien, who had 22 points and eight rebounds.

Iowa State, truly, was saved by the bell. The Cyclones, finishing up a dismal first half capped by the ejection of coach Tim Floyd just before the intermission, regrouped and rallied to upset No. 17 Missouri in the first round of the Big Eight Tournament yesterday in Kansas City, Mo. "It's kind of like the fighter getting knocked down just before the bell," assistant coach Terry Reed said. "If that half hadn't come, the situation could have really deteriorated. " Iowa State made just one of its first 19 shots, but Missouri failed to capitalize, hitting only four of its first 18. After 12 minutes, the Tigers held an 8-5 lead.

A charter plane carrying Missouri players to the game at Nebraska went off the runway in wet conditions last evening at Columbia (Mo.) Regional Airport. No one was injured in the mishap, which happened just after 5 p.m., said airport safety officer Robert Bias. "The pilot made a tight turn, and the left main gear slipped into the mud," Bias said. The plane was pulled out of the mud so passengers could reboard the Champion Air 727 last night, he said. Chad Moller, a spokesman for the Missouri athletic department, said the plane had been getting into position on the runway and moving at a very low speed.

NEW YORK - Villanova wasn't supposed to win last night at Madison Square Garden. So when the Wildcats, who had lost two of their previous three games, trailed 10th-ranked, unbeaten Missouri by 16 points with a little over 12 minutes to go in the first game of the Jimmy V Classic doubleheader, well, it seemed about right. But 11 minutes later the Wildcats were within seven, with the ball. A turnover coming out of a timeout when Maalik Wayns got trapped in the corner and threw a pass that sailed untouched into the backcourt, pretty much derailed their comeback.

Greg Folgia, who helped pitch Christopher Dock to the PIAA Class A baseball championship last spring, signed a letter of intent yesterday to play at the University of Missouri. Folgia signed in the auditorium at Dock, a small Mennonite school, before about 50 people, including a number of his classmates.

The University of Missouri won't fire an assistant professor of communications, school officials say, even though the professor, Melissa Click, has been charged with assault for blocking a student reporter who was trying to take video of protests on campus. That's a reasonable policy decision because everyone's entitled to the presumption of innocence. At the same time, the university's acting chancellor, Henry Foley, said something calculated to strike fear in the hearts of untenured professors everywhere: He indicated that the university would take account of her actions when she's being considered for tenure.

One potential distraction appears to be off the board for Temple as it prepares for Saturday's American Athletic Conference championship game at Houston. Multiple sources have told The Inquirer that head coach Matt Rhule is no longer talking to Missouri about its vacant football job. A source confirmed that the two sides met on Sunday morning in Philadelphia. Behind the scenes a source says that Temple has been in negotiations with Rhule to ensure that he will stay. And apparently, these negotiations were happening well before Missouri sought permission to speak to Rhule.

Temple football coach Matt Rhule wasn't thrilled with the question, but he had to know it was coming. A day after talking to Missouri officials about their vacant head coaching job, Rhule was asked if this would lead to any distraction heading into the American Athletic Conference championship game Saturday at Houston. "Only if people keep asking it," Rhule said Monday during a conference call with reporters. The Owls (10-2) earned the berth in the game Saturday with a 27-3 win over visiting Connecticut that clinched the AAC East Division.

TEMPLE FOOTBALL coach Matt Rhule talks all the time about blocking out the noise. As his 20th-ranked Owls (10-2) - who already have tied a program record for wins in a season that's stood for 36 years - prepare to play at No. 18 Houston (11-1) on Saturday afternoon for the American Conference title and probably a spot in a New Year's bowl game, the only outside distraction might be his status. Missouri, which won the SEC East in 2013 and '14 but went 1-7 in the conference this season, reportedly met with Rhule on Sunday to talk about its job opening.

As Temple prepares for Saturday's inaugural American Athletic Conference championship game at Houston, the unknown future of head coach Matt Rhule hangs over the program. After Saturday's 27-3 win over Connecticut clinched the East Division title and earned the Owls the title-game berth, Rhule wouldn't address a report by footballscoop.com that he was interviewing for Missouri's vacant head coach job Sunday. A person close to the situation confirmed that Rhule spoke with Missouri officials Sunday morning in Philadelphia.

After Temple beat Memphis on Nov. 21, I ran into a plugged-in and sharp Temple alum who immediately said, "Get that man a raise and a country club membership. " He wasn't talking about Temple head coach Matt Rhule. He meant Owls defensive coordinator Phil Snow, whose unit had taken over yet another game. The point is that Temple's success - a 10-2 season, a trip to Saturday's American Athletic Conference title game at Houston, national pub like it has never gotten before - comes with a price tag. It was already a given to this alum that schools would be coming after Rhule and that Temple would have to pony up to keep him. A source told The Inquirer's Marc Narducci that Rhule spoke with a representative from Missouri on Sunday.

Temple's players vowed all week that they would treat Saturday's game against Connecticut like any other. There would be no looking at the potential prize, immense as it might be, just the opponent. The Owls kept their vow while earning one of the biggest football wins in school history. For the second straight week, the defense was smothering and the offense more than efficient as Temple beat Connecticut, 27-3, to clinch the American Athletic Conference East Division title at Lincoln Financial Field.

HE IS PALE and unconscious now, adrift and half-frozen on a chunk of ice in the middle of the sea. You wonder what his colleagues will think when they pull Timothy Wolfe back aboard. Will they see the madness on his face? Will they hear the melancholy in his voice? Will they understand the lesson of his strange and perilous tale? This much is clear: The monster created by Wolfe and his fellow Division I presidents has escaped from the laboratory table. And the implications are staggering.
