Center: Jeremiah Tilmon– 6’10, 260 lbs
Minutes Per Game: 19.9
Tilmon was projected to have a breakout year last year with the team being built around him. Unfortunately, Tilmon suffered a foot injury that only allowed him to appear in 17 total games. When healthy, Tilmon showed flashes of the dominant big that he can be. For the upcoming season, Tilmon needs to put all his tools together and lead this team the right way. Tilmon is too talented and too big to be averaging under ten points a game and single-digit rebounds. If Tilmon doesn’t average close to a double-double next year, then it will be a major travesty.
A lot of people can see Mark Smith starting instead of Pickett or Brown but I believe that Cuonzo will role with this crew of guys. Mizzou has too much talent and experience to have another losing season this year.
