Missouri sophomore guard Tramaine Isabell returned from a one-game suspension and played three minutes in the first half of a 76-73 loss Wednesday against Mississippi at Mizzou Arena.
“It was a tryout,” Tigers coach Kim Anderson joked. “He didn’t practice Thursday, Friday, wasn’t there Saturday and didn’t practice Monday. We got him in a little bit and he played. But we’ll see how he does in practice the next couple of days.”
Anderson announced Saturday before playing Mississippi State that Isabell was suspended for the third time in two seasons for his poor “practice attitude and conduct.”
Isabell missed his only shot, a three-point try.
By the numbers
4: 20-point games this season for junior Wes Clark, who went 4 of 7 from the field and 10 of 10 at the free-throw line.
7: Current losing streak for Missouri, the third-longest in program history since Norm Stewart was hired in 1967.
10: Three-pointers made by Missouri, which rebounded from a 2-for-25 performance Saturday against Mississippi State to shoot 10 of 21 from distance.
