Mizzou Links for Tuesday, June 2

Cuonzo Martin opens up

Over the last few days, Missouri athletes, coaches and administrators have been speaking out on the ongoing civil unrest in America, specifically as it relates to the deaths of black men like Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd. We’ve covered in the past two morning posts, including yesterday’s links post.

While I’m sure there are people who are tired of hearing about this story from outlets like Rock M Nation (and other Mizzou-centric publications), yesterday’s feature piece from PowerMizzou is worth putting in the spotlight.

Yesterday morning, the site published an in-depth conversation with Mizzou Hoops coach Cuonzo Martin, detailing everything from his thoughts on the past week, growing up black and America and how he sees the fight against racism.

The full conversation is available to everyone, not just PowerMizzou subscribers. This link leads to it. I would encourage you to read with an open and attentive mind. Big ups to Gabe and his staff for taking the time to speak with Martin and put this together.

If you want more thoughts from Martin, he was also a part of Jeff Goodman’s podcast along with a large panel of college basketball coaches.
