COPY-Missouri hopes to overcome road woes

Associated Press - December 11, 2009 12:34 PM ET

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Thus far, it's been a very rocky road for Missouri.

The Tigers are 4-0 at home heading into Saturday night's game against Fairleigh Dickinson. But they're 0-2 on the road, and counting neutral site games are 1-3 away from Mizzou Arena after collapsing in a 60-59 loss at Oral Roberts on Wednesday night.

Missouri (5-3) beat Old Dominion in the South Padre Island Invitational before losing to Richmond in the final. The Tigers then bookended a weekend win over Oregon with losses at Vanderbilt and Oral Roberts.

Coach Mike Anderson's up-tempo style of play feeds partly off energy from enthusiastic home crowds.
