Cuonzo Martin is reuniting Mizzou Basketball with its history

Sam is joined by Jarrett Sutton to talk about how Cuonzo Martin is changing Mizzou Hoops.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Last week Jarrett Sutton was invited, along with a host of former Tigers basketball alumni to a golf outing with Cuonzo Martin at the Lake of the Ozarks. What was a seemingly small gesture is more of a pattern of behavior now for the Tigers Basketball program.


Sutton is quick to note the amount of outreach that has continually occurring under Cuonzo Martin’s watch. Whether it’s free clinics for the youths or engaging with the players of the past, Martin has extended himself again and again and while these aren’t the moves a coach looking to land the most elite talent, it’s more about the moves a coach makes when he’s trying to connect the past with the present. And Martin is doing that. He’s bridging the gap and putting things back together.

Oh, and we’re getting awfully close to preview season.
