Columbia, Mo. -Missouri freshmen basketball players Kassie Drew and Jason Horton were named this week's Lathrop & Gage student-athlete's of the week. Both student-athletes hold above a 3.0 grade-point average in their respective majors, play hard on the court and give back significantly to their local community.

Drew, a freshman guard from Anna, Ill., is undecided on her major, but holds a 3.28 grade-point average after just one semester of school. Strong on the court, Drew is 9 of 12 on free throws and has totaled 74 points in 14 games. Also to her credit, Drew has 19 assists and 43 rebounds. As a member of the women's basketball team, Drew and her teammates helped with the Columbia chapter of Toys For Tots during the holiday season.

A native of Dallas, Texas, newcomer Horton is a freshman guard on the men's basketball team. Undecided on his major, Horton earned a 3.50 grade-point average in his first semester of college. After playing in 15 of the Tigers' games this season, and starting in 11, Horton has recorded 91 points, 31 rebounds and 47 assists. Horton has given several hours of his time to volunteer work, contributing tremendous amounts of time to The Intersection Youth Clinic, Columbia Boys and Girls Club and Coaches versus Cancer.

The Tigers' women's basketball team will return to action at home, Tuesday, Jan. 18 at 7 p.m. (CT) against the Colorado Buffaloes. Missouri's men's basketball team will take on Big 12 opponent Texas Tech the following night at home in the Mizzou Arena at 7 p.m. (CT).
