You can cross one name off of the Grad Transfer Candidates list...

...and add another.

Our Matt Harris will have more on Mooney (and many others) soon, but here are some Mooney Basics:

  • A 6’3 guard from Wauconda, Ill. (yes, Wauconda), his career began at Air Force, but he transferred after his first year. You can read more about that here.
  • He averaged 18.7 points per game for a pretty dang good Coyotes team. He averaged 18.6 PPG last season and earned all-conference honors both years.
  • He ranked in the nation’s top 500 in % of team shots taken when on the court (39th), steal% (50th, and without committing many fouls), % of possessions used (71st), FT% (216th), % of team minutes on the court (391st), and assist rate (414th). He’s a high-usage dude, but he shoots well enough to remain pretty efficient.

Pretty good player. Mizzou will evidently have some stiff competition for him, though.

  • The latest view from the press box.
  • Mizzou Softball remains an RPI darling. If the Tigers can stay a couple of games over .500 (which will be increasingly difficult to pull off), they could actually sneak into the NCAA Tournament. Or at the very least, they can keep that goal on the table for a while longer.
  • Cruddy weather delayed the start of the Tiger Invitational (SHOCKING), but Mizzou leads all the same. Hayden Buckley’s a bad man on his home course.
  • Well I would hope that going to law school while kicking but in basketball would get you an excellence award of some sort...
