Missouri says F Green plans to transfer

Missouri says forward Kadeem Green plans to transfer closer to

home.

The 6-foot-8 Green averaged 10.5 minutes in 11 games for the No.

7 Tigers (13-0), who are off to their best start since the 1981-82

season. The redshirt freshman, who is originally from Toronto,

missed last season while he recovered from a torn Achilles tendon

sustained during his high school career at United Faith Christian

Academy in Charlotte, N.C.

Missouri now has only seven players on scholarship, with only

Ricardo Ratliffe and Steve Moore taller than 6-foot-6. Kim English,

a 6-6 shooting guard, has transitioned to forward to provide some

necessary depth.

The Tigers announced Green’s decision on Tuesday. Coach Frank

Haith says they wish Green nothing but the best.
