Missouri basketball coach Quin Snyder spoke to a group of about 270 fans in Kansas City and addressed the problems his program has experienced since January saying, “I’m fully willing to take responsibility for the mistakes we’ve made”. Despite allegations that have attracted an internal and NCAA investigation, Snyder told the crowd that the situation is serious but in his words can be “serious without being devastating”. The investigations were spurred by allegations of academic fraud and payments to former MU basketball player Ricky Clemons. The charges come from Clemons’ former girlfriend Jessica Bunge. She claims that Clemons had some classwork done for him and that members of the coaching staff gave him cash. Next week, Snyder will an NCAA coaches summit in Chicago, where topics on ethics and conduct will be discussed. One of the Kansas City Wizards most dependable players is expected to remain with the team for some time. Midfielder Chris Klein will sign a five year deal witht he team soon. Klein, who is a St. Louis native, is in his seventh season with Kansas City. After battling through a four-month scoring drought, Klein seems to be on the right track. On Saturday he netted two goals to lead the Wizards to a 2-0 win over Colorado. Yesterday Klein was named player of the week. The Wizards are tied for the secon- worst mark in the league, but are fourth in the Western conferene and have already locked a playoff spot.
