Athletics Department confirms relief basketball game in Joplin

With NCAA approval, the men's basketball team will face the Missouri Southern State University Lions on Oct. 30 in the "One State, One Spirit Classic" at Missouri Southern's Leggett and Platt Athletic Center in Joplin.

The exhibition game is set to benefit Joplin relief funds after the town was hit by a tornado May 22. Although ticket pricing and an official start time are not available at this time, the game will be shaped around a 5:41 p.m. moment of silence — the exact moment in which the tornado struck Joplin.

Stay tuned with The Maneater for a more updated story on the game tomorrow.
