1. Well, hello there

It's time for a reunion!

Considering Mizzou was projected by some to end up with a No. 6-7 seed before the SEC Tournament, I was holding out hope for something in the No. 10-11 range despite the egg-laying against LSU. Not so much. But they do host a regional, at least.

2. Shamburger

In case you missed it in the sea of draft stories, Mizzou just got a senior transfer: Hawaii point guard Keith Shamburger.
