Mizzou Links, 1-10-14: Mizzou women get revenge on Georgia, and Mizzou men can't coast

New, 545 comments

The Mizzou women upset a ranked Georgia team the day after the Georgia men upset a ranked Missouri team. Plus: Jordan Clarkson's not 100% point guard yet, and Maty Mauk still has at least a little bit of work to do to start for Mizzou.

2. Unfortunately, there was indeed a need for revenge

It was telling that when I asked Coach Frank Haith if Georgia had done anything to give Clarkson propels, he put the onus on Clarkson.

"Jordan’s got to pass the ball a little bit," he said. "He’s got to get that ball in and out of his hands. This first time tonight, we get into league play, and he’s got to move a little bit more and get it in and out of his hands. That ball stuck way too much tonight."

He’s right, of course, and it’s not the first time it’s seemed like Clarkson has held onto the ball too much. His ability to keep his dribble until a lane develops for him to attack has been one of his greatest strengths this season and had led to a lot of scoring  opportunities, but it sometimes runs counter to his job as the Tigers’ point guard, a position he’s to which he’s still adapting because it doesn’t always come naturally.
