SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGH.

NCAA Basketball: Mississippi at Missouri Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

WELP, it appears Jordan Barnett was arrested for suspicion of driving while intoxicated last night.

Not to jump too far ahead, but that’s almost a guaranteed suspension for the senior who is, or was, on the verge of his first NCAA Tournament appearance.

Barnett has averaged 13.7 points per game this season, second on the team to fellow senior Kassius Robertson, along with 5.9 rebounds and 1.1 rebounds. He has shot 41 percent from 3-point range. He averaged 15.7 points per game over the final seven contests of the regular season before struggling against Georgia in Missouri’s SEC Tournament loss on Thursday.

More as this develops, obviously, but MAN, THIS STINKS — and it stinks for Barnett most of all.
