Hoops Preview: Pac 10 & Patriot League and Keon Scores on the Shore

Football, schmootball. So what if the gridiron season hasn't even kicked off yet? The hoops junkies at espn.com are already looking ahead to basketball season, and they begin with the Pac 10 (their boys are big) and the Patriot League (their boys are smart).

And to bring this back to Mizzou, Tiger soph-to-be Keon Lawrence made light work of the prestigious Jersey Shore League for the second straight year. Despite the presence of senior Stefhon Hannah and the arrival of DeMarre Carroll, I think Keon emerges as Mizzou's star this year.
