Monday, June 10, 2013 | 8:38 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Next season's nonconference schedule for the Missouri men's basketball team features games against Southern Illinois, West Virginia and North Carolina State.

The schedule, announced Monday by the Tigers, also includes their annual Braggin' Rights game against Illinois in St. Louis, a rematch against UCLA in Columbia and a Nov. 16 contest against Hawaii at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri's first game in the city since winning the Big 12 Conference title there in 2012.

"We have a little bit of everything on our schedule for next season," Missouri coach Frank Haith said in a release, "and I believe it will get our team ready for play in the SEC."

Missouri will also participate in the Las Vegas Invitational set for the Thanksgiving holiday at the Orleans Arena, where the Tigers will play Northwestern and Nevada. Two opening round games at Mizzou Arena are to be announced later this summer.

Games at Mizzou Arena include the Nov. 8 season-opener against Southeastern Louisiana State followed by the Nov. 12 game against Southern Illinois. West Virginia plays in Columbia on Dec. 5 as part of the Big 12 Conference-Southeastern Conference Challenge, while UCLA visits Dec. 7.

The Tigers play at North Carolina State on Dec. 28 in Raleigh, N.C.
