Bob Lutz: Can (and will) Missouri dig deep enough to get Gregg Marshall?

I wrote earlier this week that if the Missouri basketball job came open (which it has), the Tigers would definitely have interest in Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall (duh) and that the Mizzou job might be a fit. I stand by that, although I’m surprised Frank Haith left Missouri on Friday to take the vacant Tulsa job. I figured Haith would have stayed one more season in Columbia, get fired, and then the Tigers would pursue Marshall.

KU’s Self says again that Joel Embiid is still deciding whether to enter NBA Draft

KU coach Bill Self said again Monday that Jayhawks freshman center Joel Embiid hasn’t decided to enter the NBA Draft, contrary to a Yahoo Sports report last week. “I think Joel is gathering information, but not information on where he’ll be picked because he’s going to go high,” Self said. “The decision he needs to make is, what’s best for him over time, whether to stay another year or to go.”
