A surgery to repair his right shoulder, means curtains for Linas Kleiza’s freshman season at Mizzou. Head coach Quin Snyder made that announcement yesterday in a written statement saying, “We have met with Linas’ family and our medical staff here at Mizzou and we believe that the severity of the injury would have reduced his effectiveness on the court, making immediate surgery necessary. We feel that this is the best option for Linas’ career and his eventual contribution to our program.” Kleiza was the teams leading rebounder with 8.4 grabs per game and he was fourth in scoring with 11.1 points per contest. He did all that while averaging 23 minutes per game.
