NCAA Basketball: Missouri at Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

We’re back for another episode of Dive Cuts. As we near the end of season three, Sam Snelling and Matthew Harris are back to talk about the latest developments in Cuonzo Martin’s recruiting class of 2021. As usual we start with some booze talk before jumping into some Mizzou Hoops news over the last few weeks.

Mizzou did not make the Top 5 for Kobe Bufkin, which isn’t ideal, but the tea leaves have been trending towards Michigan for weeks, so missing out on being in the top five should be no concern. Mizzou was mentioned with the latest transfer portal news when it was announced Hampton forward Ben Stanley would be entering the portal.

Let’s dive in.

Episode Breakdown:

:15 - 6:51: Welcome back to the Cocktail Hour! Sam and Matt continue to offer suggestions when it comes to quality bourbon, and a simple and tasty cocktail recipe.

6:52 - 17:20: Turning to actual basketball, Kobe Bufkin was offered by Missouri back in the spring during a virtual visit, but it looks like Michigan will be the choice. Where does Mizzou turn from here?

17:21 - 24:30: Important note! We have no idea if the season will start on time. Hopefully it does, but if we knew that, we would be somewhere else and not here on this pod, probably.

24:31 - 41:00: Mizzou has checked in on Hampton forward Ben Stanley as a transfer. What’s the report on him and how would he help Mizzou Basketball? If the roster is healthy, it’s difficult to see how Stanley would be an improvement over existing options, and that’s if he were immediately eligible. There could be some other options still out there for the open roster spot and the guys debate if it might be best to keep that spot open.

41:01 - END: FINAL THOUGHTS, Bourbon thoughts, follow Sam and Matt on Twitter and episode 30 will be in two weeks to end season 3. If you have some music recommendations for season 4, reach out and let us know! Until then, thanks for tuning in and stay safe out there. Also, happy (early) birthday to Sam, who when his birthday does happen, he will be bourbon hunting so let him know about some good spots for that if that is your thing.
