Missouri hoops signee Torrence Watson scored 58 on De Smet last night

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

Missouri’s 2018 basketball recruiting class is an unfinished picture at the moment. Until we know who Cuonzo Martin and company can land at the point guard position, we won’t really know how to evaluate the class as a whole. But we do know that Whitfield’s Torrence Watson is signed, sealed, and delivered. And we know that Watson is going to potentially be fantastic.

Nothing like scoring 58 of your team’s 74 points in a game in which your team needed basically every bucket. De Smet isn’t very good this year but managed to jump out to an early 17-8 lead after one quarter. And Watson almost literally single-handedly brought the Warriors back.

Perhaps even more impressive: if the above box score is correct, the 6’5 Watson scored nearly 60 points ... while making only three 3-pointers. He made 16 2-pointers and hit 17 of 18 free throws. Drive, finish, go to the line, rinse, repeat.

No highlights from last night just yet, but here’s a nice little mix of what Mizzou fans can expect next year.

(God, I love the fonts on basketball highlight videos.)
