The Trib (Steve Walentik): Back from vacation with some thoughts about Gill-Caesar

It's true Gill-Caesar's numbers took a hit after he hurt his back. He averaged 6.7 points and 2.1 rebounds while shooting 24.3 percent from the 3-point arc in 13 SEC games while missing three others because of the injury and two more while serving a suspension. But as of June, Gill-Caesar still hadn't gotten over the injury, and there was no way to know how it would affect him in his sophomore season.

Missouri has added more options on the wing by signing junior college transfer Martavian Payne and freshmen K.J. Walton and Cullen VanLeer as part of the 2015 recruiting class to go along with Clark, Tramaine Isabell and Namon Wright. It was Wright who was the Tigers' top scoring freshman in SEC play (7.9 ppg) and a more effective 3-point shooter than Gill-Caesar, making 38.8 percent of his long-range shots.

But it remains to be seen how much of an impact any of the newcomers has or whether one of the returners, particularly Wright, can grow enough to be a significant improvement over what Gill-Caesar was last season. Fulford, for one, believes that Payne and Walton should both be more adept than Gill-Caesar was at creating scoring chances for themselves or others because of their superior ball-handling skills.

Oh, and all hail your new basketball overlord, BST.
