Misery's Barnett arrested on DWI charge

Not a good move one week before the NCAAT. We’ll see what Cuonzo does with this one. Get Porter Jr. back, lose this guy.

I saw a note at stltoday.com that the Mizzou student-athlete handbook (do we have one of those?) specifies that an athlete in this situation is automatically suspended for one week. One week from Friday night would miss an NCAA first-round game but potentially play in the second if they win. Cuonzo has a newser scheduled Sunday afternoon after the brackets come out; I suspect the subject of Barnett’s status will come up early.
