Haith earns award
Missouri's Frank Haith has received a bittersweet honor. Three days after the
Tigers flopped in the NCAA tournament, he was chosen national coach of the year
by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association.

"It was a hard weekend, there's no doubt about it," Haith said. "When you sit back
and really look at the big picture, you have to say this team had a heck of a year.

Missouri won 30 games and the Big 12 Conference tournament.
