MUtigers.com: Mizzou Hosts Iowa State Wednesday
> Kim English recorded his ninth 20-point game of the year on Saturday, scoring 21 points at CU ... That’s the most 20-point games by a sophomore since Linas Kleiza accomplished the feat (also nine times) in 2004-05 ... In case you were wondering, Kareem Rush scored 20+ as a sophomore 16 times in 2000-01, Anthony Peeler did it eight times, Derrick Chievous 15 times and Ricky Frazier 12 times.
> Speaking of those great sophomores, Marcus Denmon’s uncle, Martinez Denmon, played collegiately at Iowa State and was drafted by the Boston Celtics in the third round (No. 52).
The Missourian: Missouri basketball team's sharpshooter changes routine
For his new night-before routine, English and Cleveland get to the arena at about 9:30 p.m. and stay until 10:45 p.m. Cleveland said he got the idea from Jannero Pargo, an NBA player with the Chicago Bulls who teamed with Cleveland at Arkansas.
"It’s just one of those things as a former player and now as a coach, you kind of see a guy who just needs to change things up, especially a shooter," Cleveland said. "Anything to get him going."
It worked. English made four 3-pointers and scored 20 after trying Pargo’s routine before the Oklahoma State game. He scored 15 the next game and had 21 points on Saturday against Colorado.
