Stefan Jankovic will transfer from Missouri

Missouri's bench just got smaller.

The school said Friday that sophomore forward Stefan Jankovic will be transferring, saying he is hoping for more playing time elsewhere.

The 6-foot-11-inch, 242-pound native of Serbia played in 28 games for the Tigers, averaging 3.1 points and 1.6 rebounds.

He scored nine points in 18 minutes in this year's opener, but only added one combined point in eight-plus minutes during Missouri's next two games.

Jankovic said he wanted to find a better fit. Coach Frank Haith said before the season that Jankovic didn't always understand his role on the court last year.
