Few basketball venues in the Southeastern Conference have more history than Vanderbilt’s Memorial Gymnasium, which was built in 1952 and is where Missouri plays at 6 p.m. Thursday in a game televised on ESPN2. Perhaps no venue presents more challenges for opposing teams than Memorial Gymnasium either. The court is elevated and the benches are situated on the baseline, making it a completely different setup than any other venue at which the Tigers will play this season.
