Mizzou Wrestling wins its third straight conference championship (second in the MAC in our first two seasons), Mizzou Softball almost squeezes out a series win in College Station, Mizzou Baseball almost squeezes out a sweep of Southern Miss, Michael Sam gets the SB Nation scouting treatment, and ... fine ... basketball stuff, too.
