Tony Criswell will miss UCLA game with broken finger.

Dilip Vishwanat

After playing with just an eight-man rotation against Illinois, it looks like Frank Haith will need to expand the bench a bit in Friday night's game versus UCLA (at the very least). Criswell, an excellent rebounder and hustle guy, was a key piece in Mizzou's fantastic rebounding effort this season. Stefan Jankovic has the energy, and Ryan Rosburg has the rebounding prowess, but either or both of them will need to prove more consistent at Pauley Pavilion. That, or as Steve Walentik suggested above, Earnest Ross might be about to take over in the Kim English Memorial role of Undersized Power Forward.

(Then again, Ross already has the shoulders of a power forward, so maybe this isn't much of a reach.)
