Anderson named Missouri coach
Missouri chose a familiar face as its new men’s basketball coach Monday.
Kim Anderson is a former star player and longtime aide to former Missouri coach Norm Stewart. He won a Division II title at Central Missouri this season and replaces Frank Haith, who left for Tulsa earlier this month.
“He’s a man of great character, integrity and respect,” athletic director Mike Alden said. “The fact that he’s a Missouri Tiger at heart is important.”
Anderson, 58, was the NABC National Coach of the Year this season after going 30-5, molding a roster that had just one returning player who averaged more than 4.7 points per game.
NWSL suspends Olympian Lloyd
Two-time Olympic gold medalist and Western New York Flash midfielder Carli Lloyd was suspended for two games by the National Women’s Soccer League for using excessive force in a game against Chicago.
Lloyd was issued a yellow card for pulling down Red Stars midfielder Vanessa DiBernardo from behind by her jersey in the first half of the Flash’s 1-0 loss at Chicago on April 19. As DiBernardo was going down, Lloyd then swung around and struck the Red Stars player in the face.
