What's On

The Mizzou women knocked off No. 22 Florida. There were 57 fouls and 47 free-throw attempts.

Stock tied a season-high with the four triples and finished a point shy of her career-high. She scored 15 points in the second half. The Tigers outscored the Gators 44-25 in bench points.

The Trib: Stock's scoring binge powers No. 23 MU women past No. 22 Florida

Stock, MU’s senior guard, went 4 for 5 from 3-point range and delivered a season-high 20 points off the bench. Her outburst came at a good time, too, considering four of Missouri’s starters found themselves in early foul trouble, and season-leading scorer Sophie Cunningham fouled out in 18 minutes of action, scoring 12 points.

Congrats to Kony Ealy and Shane Ray, the first Mizzou players to face off in a Super Bowl since Andy Russell from the Steelers and Scott Anderson from the Vikings.

Former Mizzou lineman Connor McGovern spoke with David Morrison about being more than a strongman. According to him, playing tackle may have helped his draft stock.

Did your year at tackle hurt your draft stock?

A: I think it helped me. It just showed versatility. They don’t travel 20 guys on the offensive line. They travel like eight or seven, maybe even six if you’re a brave team. I know I’m not the world’s greatest tackle by any means, but I think I have the ability to, say I’m traveling as a guard and tackle and the tackle gets hurt in the second or third quarter, I think I could help finish the game out. I don’t have the length and the size to play a full four quarters, but I could definitely get us out of a tight situation like that.

Andrew Baggett was named MVP of the NFLPA All-Star game.

Missouri flipped three commits over the weekend, from Tulsa QB and Mizzou legacy Micah Wilson, defensive tackle Markell Utsey, and Damarea Crockett, a highly ranked running back out of Little Rock.

Crockett has some pretty impressive SPARQ scores, if you're interested in explosive athletes.

Little Rock Christian junior running back Damarea Crockett, 6-0, 209 scored the highest SPARQ rating at today's Dallas Nike Combine. He had an electronic time of 4.71 seconds in the 40 yard dash, 40.3 vertical jump, 4.01 seconds in the pro-shuttle and threw the power ball 36 feet. His score of 124.62 was the best out of approximately 1,200 athletes at the Dallas event and is second best nationally.

JUCO tackle Breontae Matthews is deciding today where he'll play football

A fairly large human being, Matthews would be a nice addition to Mizzou's offensive line, but it sounds like it'll be a battle between Mizzou and Kansas State.

On the subject of Offensive line help, Mizzou offered four-star Aaron Dowdell after his recent decommitment from Georgia.
