    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) -- At a press conference in Fayetteville, Mike Anderson was formally introduced as the new head coach of the Arkansas Razorbacks.

    In nine seasons as a collegiate head coach at the University of Alabama-Birmingham (UAB) and most recently at the University of Missouri , Anderson has amassed a career record of 200-98, earning 20 wins in a season seven times and leading his teams to the NCAA Tournament in six of his nine seasons as a head coach.

    Anderson's record after his five-year stint at Missouri was a combined 111-56 (.665) and included 13 wins over ranked opponents, four NCAA Tournament victories and a 75-13 record at home. This season, the Tigers ranked No. 2 in the nation in steals per game (9.7) and turnover margin (5.4), 10th in the country in scoring offense (80.8) and among the top 30 in four other categories (scoring margin, assists per game, assist-turnover ratio, blocked shots per game).

    Three Missouri players were named to one of the Big 12 all-conference teams while junior college transfer Ricardo Ratliffe was tabbed as the Newcomer of the Year.

    THV's Mark Edwards was live in Fayetteville for the press conference on Today's THV and we'll have the entire press conference streamed on todaysthv.com.
