Melvin
Post-Dispatch: Melvin Booker bleeds blue

Devin Booker, a 6-6 reserve shooting guard for the No. 1-ranked Wildcats (19-0, 6-0 SEC), might be the nation’s best shooter. He’s already established himself as one of the best two-way players on the nation’s best team. And he’s just a freshman.

Melvin, a senior guard on MU’s beloved 1994 Big Eight championship team, said Thursday’s homecoming will be "a tough situation."

"I’m going to cheer for my son first," Melvin said. "My heart is with Mizzou as well. I might sneak in a boo here and there, but I’ll cheer, too. I feel Missouri’s pain. I know they wanted one of their former player’s kids to play for their team. I know they wanted to see him in a Missouri uniform. But Devin made his decision and I support him 150 percent."
