Welcome back to another episode of Dive Cuts with Sam Snelling and Matthew Harris. This episode features special guest CJ Moore, staff writer at The Athletic. In the heart of the offseason, Mizzou hoops coach Cuonzo Martin has a lot to think about for the future of the program while also planning for the upcoming season.

How might DaJuan Gordon fit into the mix with the other newcomers? Will Mizzou use up their 13th scholarship? Those questions and more are answered here on episode 28 of Dive Cuts.
