Wes Clark had 13 points in the first half and appeared on his way to a big scoring game before wearing down in the second half Saturday. Still, he was the Tigers’ bright spot with 15 points and six assists in a career-high 37 minutes in Missouri’s 83-61 loss to Texas A&M.
“When you look at our team, Johnathan (Williams III) and Wes are marked men,” MU coach Kim Anderson said. “They’re the veteran guys. We have to have other guys step up and help them.
“I thought Wes played really well. When you have to play guys 37, 38 minutes they’ll get fatigued after a while.”
