With Missouri in the SEC, it may be the only time Coach Frank Haith will be in the same setting with Kansas’ Bill Self and Kansas State’s Bruce Weber this year.
The Coaches vs. Cancer Tipoff Reception begins Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the College Basketball Experience. The event raises money and awareness for the American Cancer Society, and Haith, Self and Weber, along with UMKC Coach Matt Brown will join former Missouri Coach Norm Stewart at the event.
Stewart, enshrined at the college basketball hall of fame in the CBE, is a cancer survivor who has championed the cause for two decades.
Tickets are $50. More information: 816.218.7278.
