What’s next for Mizzou hoops after Dennis Gates’ excellent first season in Columbia?

The Missouri Tigers reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament and were upset by Princeton. But there was nothing upsetting about Mizzou’s season.

The Tigers were picked to finish 11th in the SEC. They were the No. 4 seed in the league tournament and reached the SEC semifinals for the first time. Missouri also won its first NCAA Tournament game in more than a decade.

In all, it was an excellent first season in Columbia for first-year MU head coach Dennis Gates. On today’s episode of The Star’s SportsBeat KC podcast, KC Star sports columnists Vahe Gregorian and Sam McDowell discuss Missouri’s season and where Mizzou goes from here, especially from a recruiting standpoint.
