Missouri Tigers' Laurence Bowers was removed from the starting lineup last week even though he'd been playing well this season. Mizzou head coach Mike Anderson put him on the bench to strengthen the reserve players and added Justin Safford to the starting lineup.â†µ
Anderson talked about the advantage of having a guy like Bowers on the bench vs. the starting lineup.â†µ
