CREVE COEUR — The Southeastern Conference may be based in Birmingham, Alabama, but college sports fans near the St. Louis area can get a taste of the SEC a bit closer to home this weekend.
The SEC Summer Summit comes to Creve Coeur in St. Louis County on Sunday with a picnic at DeSmet High School starting at 2 p.m.
The event will feature SEC Commissioner Mike Slive, MU Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin and new MU men's basketball coach Kim Anderson, among others.
The Mizzou Alumni Association and the Mizzou Tiger Club are among the sponsors, but organizers emphasize that fans and alumni of all 14 SEC schools are welcome. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under.
