A Mizzou hoops alumni all-star game at Mizzou Arena in July? Yes, please.

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

Hey, kids! Do you like DeMarre Carroll and Laurence Bowers? And Melvin Booker and Kareem Rush? And all sorts of other former Mizzou hoops stars? Because they’ll be playing at Mizzou Arena on July 22.

Tickets for the game, which Bowers is hosting on July 22 at Mizzou Arena, along with Toronto Raptors forward DeMarre Carroll, will be on sale for a $5 donation from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Columbia at 1200 N. Seventh St. In addition, tickets will be available during another presale at a to-be-determined date in July and at the door on game day.

Twenty-six former basketball and football players will participate in the game, including hoops standouts Kareem Rush and Melvin Booker. [...]

Bowers said he'll release details about the rest of the attendees incrementally — on Tuesdays and Thursdays — and added that the full list "won't disappoint." Updates can be found on his social media accounts, @LBowers_21 on Twitter and laurence.bowers on Instagram.

There’s a ticket pre-sale on Friday at the Boys & Girls Club of Columbia.

Yeah, this should be fun.

By the way, I heard from friends with SOURCES yesterday that Jontay is now extremely unlikely to reclassify ... and that he’s still pretty likely to reclassify. Glad to be able to clear that up for everybody.
