A midsummer’s Mizzou hoops update and who watches the watch lists?

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

1. Cuonzo Martin met with the media on Tuesday

The most urgent news? A new team on Missouri’s schedule for 2018-2019.

There is some more scheduling news included in Gabe DeArmond’s hoops notebook (and it’s not behind a paywall!) so check that out as well.

Probably the biggest personnel-related news from the session came regarding the absence of freshman point guard Xavier Pinson.

2. When will the watch lists end?

Three more Mizzou players were selected to preseason watch lists on Tuesday, as Terry Beckner, Jr. and Paul Adams got the nod for the Outland Trophy watch list. Beckner (again) and linebacker Terez Hall were picked on the Nagurski Trophy watch list.

The Outland Trophy is given to the best interior lineman (offense or defense), and the Nagurski Trophy is given to the best defensive player.

If you’re having trouble keeping track of which Mizzou players (11!) are on preseason watch lists, here you go:
