Mizzou beats KU again, advances to Super Regional


In the deciding game of the NCAA Columbia Regional against Kansas, Mizzou maneuvered around an awkward pitching arrangement -- Paige Lowary was sick, Tori Finucane was tired, and Cheyenne Baxter was not very experienced against high-caliber opponents -- to jump out to a 7-2 lead, then hold on for dear life. Despite a late KU charge, the Tigers prevailed, 7-6. Mizzou, the overall No. 10 seed, advances to face No. 7 UCLA in next week's Super Regional. Here's the updated bracket. We'll have plenty of preview work in the coming days, but for now ... Regional title: check. Two more wins over KU: check. Not a bad weekend.
