At a press conference today, Mizzou head coach Mike Anderson said that UConn will be one of the Tigers' toughest challenges, led by "Hashan Thabeet."
Later, while asking questions to Mizzou players, a Missouri media member (not sure who) asked what a challenge it would be to go up against "The Beast." Once and it could be forgiven as a Freudian slip. But it happened twice, in two different questions from the same guy.
Anyway, UConn's starting five and Jim Calhoun will be up at the podium in about 15 minutes. Should be interesting.
