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.


Missouri players still hold out hope for NCAA bid on Sunday

Missouri juniors Jabari Brown and Jordan Clarkson won’t watch any basketball this weekend after the Tigers’ NCAA Tournament dreams likely were dashed Friday at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta with a SEC quarterfinal loss to No. 1 Florida. “I’m tired hearing about this ‘first team out’ and all that stuff. It’s annoying. We’ll just see when it comes,” said Brown.

Missouri needs young linebacking corps to step up

For most of the spring, Missouri has played without any returning starters at linebacker after junior Kentrell Brothers underwent surgery March 28 to repair a torn labrum during spring break. Fortunately, what the Tigers lack in experience, they just might make up for in athleticism.

Petition for protection order against ex-MU player Zach Price is dismissed

An order of protection petition filed by former Missouri guard Earnest Ross against once-teammate Zach Price has been dismissed, the Boone County Circuit Clerk’s office confirmed Wednesday. Ross did not show up for court Wednesday morning, prompting the dismissal. He sought the order of protection on April 2 after alleging that Price had been stalking him and “caused or attempted to cause me physical harm.”

NCAA rule regarding draft cuts evaluation time for players

Players have to decide by today — the day before the spring signing period, which begins April 16 and continues through May 21 for Division I basketball this year — whether to remain in the NBA Draft or lose their future NCAA eligibility. The effect is that, rather than spending a month working out for NBA teams and receiving a thorough examination, decisions by players such as Missouri’s Jabari Brown will be based primarily on scouting reports prepared by NBA executives.

Sasha Menu Courey’s parents hope Mizzou learns from investigation

The independent report by the Dowd Bennett Law Firm in Clayton, Mo., into MU’s handling of sexual assault allegations by former swimmer Sasha Menu Courey was critical of the university, but her parents said they are pleased with the investigation’s thoroughness and recommendations. “Our daughter Sasha went through a perfect storm of unfortunate events that led to her suicide,” Menu Courey’s parents said in a statement released Monday. “Although we cannot change the past, we hope that the lessons learned from the investigation will lead to positive changes for future athletes and students.”
