E.J. Gaines had a scary moment yesterday, taking a knee to the head from a teammate and getting carted off the field. But evidently he's all good.

Going Small
Post-Dispatch: Smaller Mizzou lineup suits Anderson

Against an Illinois team that lacks a true post player, Anderson planned to play a smaller lineup, favoring combinations of 6-9 Johnathan Williams III, 6-8 Jakeenan Gant and 6-7 D’Angelo Allen. Those three helped fuel Mizzou’s best effort against a high-major opponent this season, and Anderson hinted he might stick with the formula.

"I think we’re going to make some alterations," he said. "I’m not saying the other guys (Rosburg and Post) aren’t going to play. But I came into this game with the idea that I wanted to play J3 and Jakeenan and D’Angelo more. … I still wanted Ryan to get a shot in there and see what he could do. But I thought they did well."

Especially Williams, who paced Missouri with 15 points and eight rebounds. It was his fifth straight game with at least 15 points and fifth straight with eight rebounds or more.
