With the Kansas State scrimmages on tap this weekend -- not open to the public mind you, which stinks since it'd be outstanding to see how MU tries to match up with the ridiculously talented Michael Beasley -- here are a few articles to check out:
- Todd Rosiak reports that MU received a scare last week when freshman power forward was injured in practice. Turns out the 6'7" frosh was forced to miss just four practices and will play today against the Wildcats.
- The always solid Mike DeCourcy of The Sporting News ranks MU #14 in his pre-season poll. In the article, DeCourcy notes that TC will rely heavily on Ousmane Barro to patrol the middle.
- Big East Basketball report slots the 'Cuse in at #4 in the league. The guess here is that MU will come in at #3 any day now.
- Regarding Tyshawn Taylor, it makes sense to watch Canadian PG Devoe Joseph's situation. Joseph, a 6'2" point guard, is considering Virginia Tech, KU, Vandy and Minnesota. Should Joseph decide on either KU or Virginia Tech, two programs after Tyshawn Taylor, perhaps Taylor looks harder at another suitor.
