Posted by Tom on 2014/5/16 13:19:42 (243 reads) News by the same author

The University of Missouri's basketball program has another scholarship available for the Class of 2014, after freshman point guard Shane Rector announced his desire to transfer out of the Tiger program.

Rector, in his only season at Missouri, average 0.5 points and 0.3 rebounds per game, struggling to find consistent playing time behind Jordan Clarkson and Wes Clark. He played in 23 games at Missouri, including a solid performance in a first-round win in the SEC Tournament in March. In an 91-83 double overtime win against Texas A&M, Rector had three steals, connected on 3-of-4 free throws, and grabbed two rebounds to push a foul-ravaged Tiger team to the win in the second overtime.

Rector, in referencing his decision, said, "I appreciate Coach Anderson and the administration at Missouri for supporting me as I look for a new opportunity. This was a difficult decision because I have made some great friends during my time here. Mizzou is a great university with great people. This was just a personal decision that my family and I felt was in my best interest".

With two scholarships now available to Head Coach Kim Anderson, Missouri is believed to be zeroing in on former Wake Forest commit Sheldon Mitchell, and former Mizzou and California forward Ricky Kreklow to fill those slots. Mitchell, who is visiting the Missouri campus this weekend, is expected to decide between Vanderbilt and Missouri next Thursday. He is visiting the Vanderbilt campus in Nashville, Tennessee early next week. Kreklow, a Columbia native and son of Missouri's volleyball coaches, is believed to be exploring the possibility of a transfer back home to play one final collegiate season at MU.
