COLUMBIA — Missouri's basketball success this season has earned coach Mike Anderson an extra $130,000 worth of incentive payments.
Anderson's base salary is $850,000. He earned an extra $25,000 for taking the team to the NCAA tournament and another $25,000 for winning the Big 12 Conference tournament. That's on top of $20,000 for winning at least 25 games and $25,000 for meeting team academic goals.
The team's 83-79 second-round NCAA win over Marquette on Sunday means an additional $35,000 in bonuses for Anderson. He gets $25,000 for reaching the tournament's second weekend and $10,000 for a 30-win season.
Missouri (30-6) plays Memphis (33-3) Thursday in the round of 16 in Glendale, Ariz.
