COLUMBIA, Mo. Mike Anderson's homecoming to Mizzou Arena was all Tigers hoped it would be.
Missouri overcame a sluggish start and blitzed the Razorbacks with a 93-63 win in front of 15,061 fans in Anderson's first game back since leaving for Arkansas two years ago.
The Tigers (22-8, 11-6 SEC) avenged a 73-71 loss to the Razorbacks in Fayetteville last month by hitting 58 percent of their field goal attempts. Missouri led by as many as 34 points.
Arkansas forced five turnovers before the first media timeout to stake a 7-5 lead, but folded from there.
Missouri used a 9-0 run a little more than midway through the first half to build a 15-point cushion and scored the period's final 13 points to take a 48-22 lead into halftime.
The Razorbacks made just 1 of 15 attempts from 3-point range in the first half and were out-rebounded 44-19 by the bigger frontline of the Tigers.
BJ Young led Arkansas (18-12, 9-8) with 27 points in his first collegiate game in his home state. The St. Louis native scored 20 points after halftime.
Four players scored in double-figures for the Tigers, led by senior Laurence Bowers' 24 points. Bowers, one of two remaining Missouri players who played for Anderson, was among three seniors playing their final game at home.
Jabari Brown, who scored a game-high 25 points in the loss at Arkansas, added 20 points as the Tigers improved to 17-0 at Mizzou Arena this season.
The 30-point loss was Arkansas' most lopsided ever to Missouri in a series that dates to 1950. The Razorbacks fell to 1-11 away from home this season.
Arkansas will conclude the regular season with a game against Texas A&M on Saturday at Bud Walton Arena.
