The Missouri men’s basketball team will have another opening on the 2023-24 roster.

Isiaih Mosley, a 2019 Rock Bridge High School graduate, announced Wednesday on social media he will not return to Missouri and will pursue a professional basketball career.

“After much consideration, conversation, and unwavering support from my family, I have decided to embark on the professional path,” Mosley posted on Twitter. “This lifelong dream of mine is now within reach, and I’m eager to witness my aspirations transform into reality.”

Mosley appeared in 14 games this past season, his only season with the Tigers. He averaged 9.6 points per game and scored a season-high 23 points Nov. 23 against Coastal Carolina.

However, Mosley only appeared in six games after Jan. 1 and only played in five Southeastern Conference games, citing “personal reasons” for missing several games last season. His final contest with Missouri was Feb. 4, a 63-52 road loss to Mississippi State.

Mosley played his first three seasons at Missouri State. 

During the 2021-22 season, Mosley was named the Missouri Valley Conference player of the week five times and was runner-up in the conference Larry Bird player of the year voting.


On Tuesday, Kaleb Brown announced he had withdrawn his name from the transfer portal and will return to Missouri next season.

Brown will be one of seven players returning to the Tigers from last year’s roster. Other players on that list include Nick Honor, Jackson Francois, Aidan Shaw, Noah Carter, Mabor Majak and Sean East II.
