Video: Mizzou guard Keion Bell dunks over six people

By on 12:52 PM

While the Missouri football Tigers continue to struggle during their first season in the SEC, the Mizzou basketball team is just getting ready to prepare for their inaugural season in the new conference.

One year removed from a 30-5 season under first year head coach Frank Haith, Mizzou will look very different in Haith's second season thanks to an impressive group of transfers.

One of those transfers is guard Keion Bell, who is a very athletic transfer from Pepperdine.

Bell showed off his athleticism at the team's Mizzou Madness event on Friday night.  Bell dunked over six people.  Check out the video here.

Bell will be an important part of Haith's team this season as the coach has to replace the production lost due to graduation of second round NBA draft picks Marcus Denmon and Kim English.

After sitting out last season due to transfer rules, Bell will likely add a scoring punch.  Bell appeared in 20 games for Pepperdine in 2010-11, averaging 18.9 points per game.

Haith has himself a very athletic guard to pair with Phil Pressey and Michael Dixon.  Bell will certainly make Mizzou fun to watch again this season.
