It’s Signing Day and we are 14 days away from real live basketball!

Two weeks from tonight, Mizzou Men’s Basketball returns with a game vs. Oral Roberts! We will have PLENTY of coverage here at Rock M Nation, including position previews, opponent previews, and so much more!

Coach Pingeton’s team is gearing up, having survived the Great Team Quarantine of 2020.

Moving on...

On Tuesday, Jon Rothstein revealed his 5 teams that could overachieve this season, and guess what? Mizzou was included!

Missouri: Several SEC coaches believe that the Tigers are a team to watch this season and it’s hard to argue when you break down their roster. Missouri only won 15 games a year ago, but was hampered by injuries as Jeremiah Tilmon missed 14 games and Mark Smith missed seven. Everyone else of significance returns in Columbia, highlighted by the Tigers’ top two leading scorers from last season in Dru Smith and Xavier Pinson. This is a potential NCAA Tournament team in 2021.

You just love to see other people recognize that we could be pretty good this year. Looking forward to a HEALTHY year and a great year watching this experienced team perform.

In other Men’s Hoops news, everyone’s favorite basketball statistician, Ken Pomeroy, appeared on the Big Sports Show on Tuesday evening, chatting about the upcoming season for both Mizzou and SLU. Basketball talk starts around the 9-10:00 mark, if you’re interested.

Today is also Signing Day, and Mizzou Women’s Hoops will officially welcome 4 members to their 2021 class! Men’s Hoops will welcome 5 new members, which Matthew J Harris will tell you all about, as well as what to look for in 2022 early this morning!
