KC Star (Campus Corner): Mizzou better without Bowers?
Zvosec said of Missouri's loss for the season of Laurence Bowers to a knee injury: "It's a weird dichotomy. It's addition by subtraction.
"Losing Laurence Bowers I think may have been the best thing for Frank Haith and this team.
"They certainly wouldn't be as good an offensive team with Bowers in there as opposed to the extra guard."

[One SEC official pulls out a cowbell and begins hitting it which causes every Missouri official to jump out of their seat.]
"We don’t expect you to become complete acclimated to this change for at least a year."
"In time, however, you’ll grow to love the SEC."
[Even more cowbells now]
"AND WE KNOW THAT THIS WILL BE BENEFICIAL FOR ALL PARTIES INVOLVED!"
[Michael now begins playing his cowbell which he was storing in his coat pocket. The Missouri officials look incredibly uncomfortable, but after 2 minutes the cowbells stop.]
"Now, are there any questions?"
[A Mizzou official clears his throat, and for the first time today someone speaks]
"Can you provide us with any necessary information regarding SEC basketball?"
[Silence. Complete and utter silence.]
