COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Missouri has hired Central Missouri's Kim Anderson, a former star player and longtime aide to Norm Stewart, as its men's basketball coach.

The decision Monday came shortly after the school's board of curators met in Columbia, Mo. A news conference to introduce Anderson was set for Tuesday morning.

The 58-year-old Anderson won a Division II championship at Central Missouri this season.

Former UCLA coach Ben Howland also had been believed to be a finalist for the job. Frank Haith left for Tulsa earlier this month after three seasons.
