Just a couple of notes leading up to the first exhibition game of the season against University of Missouri/St. Louis. 

First, junior forward DeMarre Carroll was named the nation’s number 3 impact transfer according to Rivals.com.  Carroll was also named Big 12 Newcomer of the Year as well.

Former Tiger Thomas Gardner made the Chicago Bulls roster…he’s taking up their 15th roster spot.  Is that like the equivalent to an NFL’s practice squad?

The tip-off has changed to 3pm for this Saturday when Mizzou plays UMSL.
