Former Salem Tiger, Missouri State and St. Louis University men's basketball coach Charlie Spoonhour passed away Wednesday morning at his family's home in North Carolina, at age 72. He coached the Bears from 1983-92 and compiled a 197-81 record while leading MSU to five NCAA Tournament appearances. He went on to coaching stops at Saint Louis University (1992-99) and UNLV (2001-04). He was 373-202 in 19 years overall as a Division I head coach.

The nation's best wide receiver - and arguably the single best player in this 2012 National Signing Day class - is carrying Missouri into the Southeastern Conference. Dorial Green-Beckham committed to the Tigers on Wednesday morning, ending weeks of speculation where the Springfield, Missouri product would end up. He immediately joins T.J. Moe in a now-loaded wide receiver corps to team with Henry Josey, the Big 12’s leading rusher until he went down with a season ending knee injury. James Franklin has to be especially pleased knowing he now has an impact downfield talent.
