Ben Hansbrough, brother of Tar Heel Tyler, got his release from Mississippi State and has spoken to University of Missouri coach Mike Anderson earlier this week about transferring. The Hansbrough family lives in Poplar Bluff, MO.

Hansbrough, a junior-to-be, would miss next season because of NCAA transfer rules but would have two years of eligibility remaining because he hasn't used his redshirt season.

The younger Hansbrough played in 33 games last year and average just over 10 points a game, but Hansbrough is looking for a different opportunity. One source close to Hansbrough says that the team lacks coaching discipline and that the players are running the team. We saw two of their games during the NCAA tournament and we never saw any of his teammates pass him the ball. How he averaged 10.8 points per game seems a mystery.

In addition to Missouri, other schools have also contacted Hansbrough. Schools believed to have been in contact with the sophomore player are Oklahoma, Butler, Notre Dame, Purdue, Arkansas, and Florida. There may also be some interest from Kansas.

  1. I thought I was the only one that watched Ben all alone with both hands in the air, and the ball never comes to him.
