UConn transfer Alex Oriakhi just told CBSSports he is headed to Missouri. Story coming soon.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanCBS) April 13, 2012
That tweet more or less sums it up, but former UConn center Alex Oriakhi will finish his career as a Missouri Tiger, according to CBS Sports' Jeff Goodman. I don't have much to add besides saying I'm happy for Alex. The move will reunite him with former AAU teammate Phil Pressey and I have maintained that the Tigers style of play, experienced backcourt and lack of front-court depth made Mizzou the perfect landing spot for AO. We wish him the best.
