The SEC has released its Academic Honor Roll! AND Cuonzo finally sipped that coffee!


According to, Mizzou Athletics has placed 43 athletes on the Winter Sports Academic Honor Roll. Leading the way with the most recipients— Women’s Swim & Dive with NINETEEN.

Let’s see who was honored!

Women’s Hoops- Haley Troup, Hannah Schuchts, Jordan Roundtree, and Elle Brown

Men’s Hoops- Dru Smith, Evan Yerkes, Parker Braun, and Brooks Ford

Gymnastics- Chelsey Christensen, Lauren Clevenger, Hannah McCrary, Morgan Porter, and Aspen Tucker

Swim & Dive- There were 30. THIRTY. Great job in the classroom, all.

Moving on, I’ve been waiting for this!!! I know a segment of the fan base is less than thrilled with the new commitment, but whatever, y’all. There’s a reason Cuonzo recruited him back in 2018, and I trust him.

Onto the links we go! Happy Friday!
