Mizzou Basketball Coach Frank Haith Comments On The Move To The SEC

The Missouri Tigers can't wait to get going in their new basketball conference. Many things will be different this season as Mizzou prepares to hopefully begin carving up their opponents in the SEC. Head men's basketball coach Frank Haith had some thoughts on the big move.

Andy Katz at ESPN collected some thoughts from head coaches around the country that are overseeing teams moving to new conferences this fall. Here's what men's head basketball coach Frank Haith had to say about the move to the SEC for Mizzou:

"We are leaving one great basketball league for another, so I believe the challenges will be similar. The SEC has won three of the last seven national titles, and you have a great mix of established and growing programs. Obviously the league is filled with talented coaches and players. We saw 12 guys from the league drafted last week, so you are playing against some of the top talent in the game night in and night out. We played 18 league games last year, so that will be similar, but there will be new opportunities as well, new teams, new venues and new styles."

Exciting times indeed for
