The Missouri Tigers
have played three games since losing forward Laurence Bowers
to a sprained ligament in his knee, and the results have been less than ideal. The hope was Bowers could be back on the floor in time to take on the Florida Gators
, but that didn't happen. The question of how much longer Bowers is going to be out, and what the team is going to do to try and fill the void, is an extremely pressing one.
It's clear a different attack is going to be necessary if the last three games are any indication. Add in injuries to a couple other key players (Keion Bell, ankle, and Earnest Ross, back), and the Tigers look to be in real trouble for possibly the first time in Frank Haith's brief tenure as head coach.
