    Missouri has a couple of players with international experience, freshmen Negus Webster-Chan and Stefan Jankovic. The two Canadians have played with the FIBA basketball and each shared their thoughts on the biggest difference between the U.S. game and the international game.

    Negus Webster-Chan:
    "To me it's sweeping through with the basketball. We learn how to sweep through on offense and create a driving angle, but in international play they will call that a walk all day. You have to step back, start your dribble and then make your move. Our guys will adjust, but it'll get them a few times."
