Mizzou basketball’s Ronnie Suggs who sat out a year after transferring from Bradley played a key role in Tuesday’s win over Arkansas. In his six minutes, he scored five points including a three-pointer that helped extend the Tigers lead and then he was involved in the defensive stop on the final play of the game and he did it all on his 23rd birthday. Now the Washington Missouri native has been placed on scholarship by Cuonzo Martin.
In two years at Bradley, Suggs started 20 games and appeared in 35 before sitting out last season due to transfer rules. Suggs is averaging eight minutes a game this season and 1.8 ppg.
