COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) When new Missouri coach Cuonzo Martin overhauled the roster in the offseason with a top-five recruiting class, it appeared from the outside that feisty but offensively challenged junior guard Jordan Geist could be an odd man out.
As it turned out, Geist was just Martin's type. And in Saturday night's 100-77 victory over Green Bay, he was an offensive machine.
Geist, a reserve guard who entered the game averaging 5.2 points, scored 28, exceeding his previous career high by 10. He made 11 of 14 shots from the field and 5 of 8 from 3-point range.
