The game between the Tigers and Cowboys will be played on December 30, 2014. Game time and television information will be announced at a later date. The meeting will be the 119th time in series history, with Mizzou owning a 77-41 advantage all-time. The programs last met in the 2013 Big 12 Tournament, resulting in a 88-70 Missouri victory. The match-up at the Sprint Center will mark the 15th time the teams have met in Kansas City. The first meeting in KC took place in December 29, 1959, with OSU winning 64-49 in the Big 8 Holiday Tournament.

Last season, Missouri beat Hawaii 92-80 at the Sprint Center. Oklahoma State survived an up-and-down 2013-2014 season, finishing 21-13, but advancing to the NCAA Tournament for the second straight year. Senior Le'Bryan Nash is expected to be the top returning player for the Cowboys, along with junior Phil Forte, the Big 12's leading returner in both three-point and free-throw shooting.

Missouri also confirmed that they will play in the 2015 CBE Classic in Kansas City, with the tentative field including, in addition to MU, Kansas State, North Carolina, and Northwestern. The Tigers and K-State could play this season, as the two former conference rivals are among eight teams in the Maui Invitational from November 24th to the 26th. Other schools in the field are Arizona, BYU, Pittsburgh, Purdue, San Diego State, and Chaminade.

The 2014 CBE Classic is set, with Iowa State serving as the regional host for a field that includes the Big 10's Maryland Terrapins, the Pac-12's Arizona State Sun Devils, and the SEC's Alabama Crimson Tide.

First-year MU basketball coach Kim Anderson told the Tiger Club of Kansas City, on Monday morning, that Missouri will open this coming season at home against UMKC. Missouri's scheduled home game with North Carolina State will be moved from this season to 2015-2016. The Wolfpack and the Tigers both have "scheduling conflicts". The Tigers will travel to Cincinnati to play the Xavier Muskateers in 2015-2016 as well.

Tickets for the December 30th game will go on sale to Tiger Scholarship Fund members and men's basketball season ticket holder starting in July. Fans in those groups are encourage to purchase through July at MUTigers.com or by calling the Mizzou Athletics Ticket Office at 1-800-CAT-PAWS. The public sale for the game will begin in August through the Sprint Center.
