Missouri basketball coach Frank Haith announced Tuesday that Zach Price, a 6-foot-10, 250-pound forward from Cleveland, will play for the Tigers as a redshirt junior starting in the 2014-2015 season. "We are really excited to welcome Zach into our basketball family," Haith said. "Obviously Zach has great size and this redshirt season will be critical for him as he works to develop his body and improve his low-post skill. "We've had a very good track record developing our post layers over the last two years and that played a big role in him deciding to come to Mizzou. We like to play from the inside out and I believe Zach has the ability to be a very good low-post scorer and defender in the Southeastern Conference." Price comes to the University of Missouri after playing two seasons for the Louisville Cardinals, where he made seven starts last season, averaging 7.7 minutes per game. As a sophomore he averaged 1.3 points and 1.4 rebounds and played a season high 19 minutes and scored four points and grabbed three rebounds in his first career start against Duke in the 2012 Battle 4 Atlantis championship game. He also played two minutes in the semifinal matchup against Missouri on Nov. 23. For his career Price played in 35 games at Louisville and scored a career high six points on two occasions. He scored six points and grabbed six rebounds against Fairleigh Dickinson as a freshman in 2011 and scored six points in a start at College of Charleston last year. "I'm excited to be at the University of Missouri and knew this was where I wanted to be once I got to campus and had a chance to see the facilities and meet with everyone," Price said. "I've seen what the coaching staff has done with guys like Alex Oriakhi and Laurence Bowers and felt Missouri would be the best place for me to continue my education, improve my game and compete for championships. "I'm excited to get to school and ready to get to work." Price will sit out the 2013-14 season, per NCAA transfer rules.
