Davidson coach impressed with Tigers

COLUMBIA Davidson coach Bob McKillop probably didn’t want to be drawn into comparing Mike Anderson’s first Missouri basketball team with Quin Snyder’s last two. McKillop and Snyder’s friendship was the main reason the Wildcats and Tigers had played each other three years running.

This one was a fight.

True, the Missouri basketball team never trailed Davidson by more than five points yesterday afternoon, but the Tigers couldn’t put their opponent away with the clocking ticking toward five minutes remaining at Mizzou Arena.
