According to ESPN our basketball team now has 3 4-star basketball players and one being a top 100 recruit.

All three guys had offers from other major schools... even though rivals have two of these guys at three stars I think especially in Brown's case he had some major league offers from big league basketball programs.

Here is the good news in my opinion... none of these three will be jumping to the NBA any time soon. When you look at teams like Virginia, who had pretty much a JR led team, they developed over 3 years, got some luck and won the whole thing.

Kentucky's model is to take the 4 or 5 best NBA bound players and roll the dice... they're good but they just can't win with that model. The teams we're seeing win are with the 4 star guys who develop over 2 or 3 seasons.

Now if KM can keep it up and keep landing a top 100 guy, couple 4 star guys, they could pop up two years from now with a vet team, knows how to play together and win on the highest level.

I like this model a lot better than chasing down the Porters of the World, the one and done isn't working for the teams winning the whole thing.

Great recruiting class which I think mixed with our vets should push us into the tournament, and two years from now with a little luck who knows.

          That's the urban razzle dazzle - Ragnar Danneskjold STL - 5/16 10:56:01

          ^^^wants us to focus on the mid-range game(nm) - Mizzmi27 MU - 5/16 10:39:08
          Didn’t do that in the year with Kash - wu-tangtiger MU - 5/16 10:20:32
               It did happen with Kash. It took a few games into SEC - SuperTone MU - 5/16 11:23:57
               Right didn't CM talk about that in his press conference this - kcnorthside KC - 5/16 10:29:23
     4 star guys in basketball are still longshots. - SuperTone MU - 5/16 09:06:19

          KA also coudn't coach for **** - Da_Haze KC - 5/16 11:29:50
          They all panned out, other than Teki who got injured - FIJItiger MU - 5/16 11:23:23
          Almost all planned out - wu-tangtiger MU - 5/16 09:07:58
               Crazy to think we won 27 games in three seasons - Domino MU - 5/16 09:18:08
                    This is the roster that Cuonzo inherited - FIJItiger MU - 5/16 11:24:38
                         Lol, "wouldn't make a good team at CMSU"... You are - TheWildcat STL - 5/16 11:30:24
                              So you think - FIJItiger MU - 5/16 11:34:55
                                   Of course they would be. All of those players minus Kemp - tgr MU - 5/16 11:49:22
                                        Good D2 players is not what he had at CMSU - FIJItiger MU - 5/16 11:59:24
                                             He had washed up P5 players. They were the same caliber - tgr MU - 5/16 12:13:02
                                                  Robinson won the DiRenna Award (same as Marcus Denmon) - FIJItiger MU - 5/16 12:19:09
                                                       And Ricki Kreklow won Missouri player of the year - wu-tangtiger MU - 5/16 12:40:57
                                                            But we did see Robinson play, because he played against - FIJItiger MU - 5/16 13:34:26
                                                  Robinson averaged 3 points on 28% shooting - wu-tangtiger MU - 5/16 12:16:33
                                                       RE: Robinson averaged 3 points on 28% shooting - FIJItiger MU - 5/16 12:22:23
                                                            Why ignore a full season of games at Texas Tech in - tgr MU - 5/16 14:51:36
                                                                 I didn't watch him play there, did you? - FIJItiger MU - 5/16 15:34:27
                                   Reed Nikko would be the best C in CMSU's conference. - TheWildcat STL - 5/16 11:47:57
                                        As I said, Barnett and Puryear are a different caliber of - FIJItiger MU - 5/16 11:56:36
                                             No, Nikko is better in every single way(nm) - TheWildcat STL - 5/16 13:53:20
                         There were a couple other players - wu-tangtiger MU - 5/16 11:28:12

          You're not the only one and I don't agree with it - longtimereader MU - 5/16 15:06:10
          Normally MU has a much higher than #36 ranked class (nm) - FIJItiger MU - 5/16 11:39:44

     1 & Done players are going away soon - MoGold MU - 5/15 19:29:06
          Yes, and it will be interesting to see how Duke & Kentucky - alwaysright MU - 5/15 20:53:36
               They will still recruit the best players - wu-tangtiger MU - 5/15 21:15:34
                    Well, I should adjust my previous statement. The one and - alwaysright MU - 5/16 06:52:58
                    Way too early to say that - zodiac6 JC - 5/15 23:05:49
     Agreed! - KCTiger83 MU - 5/15 18:54:41

     If this current roster sticks together, it will be - alwaysright MU - 5/15 16:32:16
          I agree with the basic concept - that we should have a good - GeorgiaTiger76 MU - 5/16 06:54:22
               I generally agree. I have said in the past that we must - alwaysright MU - 5/16 07:17:20
                    I hear you, and I agree. If you're a top 15 team, you - GeorgiaTiger76 MU - 5/16 09:46:53
                         We were a top 15 team in 1973, lost in the 1st round of NIT(nm) - FIJItiger MU - 5/16 11:26:37
                              You're is a contraction taking the place of "you" and - GeorgiaTiger76 MU - 5/16 14:21:42
          winning 2 games let alone 6 is getting tougher and tougher - Jeff85 MU - 5/15 20:14:17
               Well, to get to the Sweet 16, you only have to win 2. So - alwaysright MU - 5/15 20:52:07
               disagree that you have to have a go to scorer - wu-tangtiger MU - 5/15 20:48:17
                    we don't have enough scoring - Jeff85 MU - 5/16 08:14:22
                         Depends on what we get from the 4 position - wu-tangtiger MU - 5/16 08:37:28
                              that gets us to 70, still not enough in my - Jeff85 MU - 5/16 11:26:27
                                   Virginia averaged 71 last season - wu-tangtiger MU - 5/16 11:32:02
                                        we're many levels below Virginia on defense - Jeff85 MU - 5/16 13:39:02
                                             Definitely true on 1 maybe true on 2 - wu-tangtiger MU - 5/16 13:49:45
                                                  so if our plus minus is plus 2 we win 23-25 games - Jeff85 MU - 5/17 00:50:46
                                                       No it would be 4-6 - wu-tangtiger MU - 5/17 07:22:54
                                                            skeptical on that big of a jump offensively - Jeff85 MU - 5/17 08:19:49
                                                                 Mizzou was at 58 the 2018 season - wu-tangtiger MU - 5/17 08:27:30
                                                                      we lost by far our best scorer, I know he doesn't count - Jeff85 MU - 5/17 12:14:06
                                                                           Geist will be a big loss, but I think the offense improves - wu-tangtiger MU - 5/17 12:32:58
                                                                                I would absolutely play small most of the time - Jeff85 MU - 5/17 21:10:13
