We talking about practice!

We might be right smack dab in the middle of college football season, but the college basketball season is just around the corner as well.

Wednesday marked the first official day of practice for Mizzou Men’s Basketball. Don’t believe it? Evidence here from DRF:

The Tigers entered the court with the band playing the Mizzou fight song. Band director Tamar Bates?

We’re now less than 40 days until Missouri’s November 6th season opener against Arkansas Pine-Bluff.

And with Mizzou Basketball’s 2024 recruiting class currently ranked No. 1 in the country per 247Sports, the program has gotten a lot of national attention recently. On the CBS Sports’ Eye on College Basketball podcast, Gary Parrish and 247Sports’ Director of Scouting Adam Finkelstein discussed Dennis Gates and Mizzou’s top recruiting class. Must watch content right here:

ICYMI (from Monday): Our Sam Snelling joined Brendan Wiese on The Big 550 KTRS “Big Sports Show’ to discuss all things Mizzou Basketball recruiting.

And from the women’s basketball team — the SEC announced women’s hoops TV designations and tip-times on Wednesday. Robin Pingeton’s Tigers will appear 10 times on national television. Here’s the full TV schedule (with Braggin’ Rights vs Illinois TBA)

Time for them to establish an identity!

Onto the links. M-I-Z!
