It’s GAME DAY (kind of)

For the first time this season, Mizzou will play a basketball game against another opponent at Mizzou Arena under head coach Dennis Gates in an exhibition contest against St. Louis’ Washington University. The tip-off is set for 7:00 p.m. CST.

Kobe Brown, entering his senior season with a potential extra year of eligibility due to COVID, was named to the Preseason Coaches First Team All-SEC on Wednesday.

According to Mizzou Basketball, Brown becomes the first Tiger since Michael Porter Jr. to earn first-team preseason all-conference honors.

Here’s Dennis Gates on Kobe Brown:

Congrats to Kobe on a well-deserved recognition, but what about our guy Isiaih Mosley who was notably missing? Don’t worry, he comes in at No. 23 in ESPN’s Top 100 newcomer impact rankings ($$).

From Jeff Borzello:

“There are plenty of shots available in Columbia this season, and Mosley proved himself as one of the most explosive scorers in the portal at Missouri State. Averaged 20.4 points and hit 40 points twice last season.”

Moving onto football, the biggest news to come out of Wednesday night’s latest edition of “Tiger Talk” is that Missouri is nearing a contract extension with defensive coordinator Blake Baker, Dave Matter reports:

This is VERY good news for Eli Drinkwitz and the Mizzou Football program. Stay tuned for news on an official announcement, potentially coming later today?

Onto the links. M-I-Z!
