The Anderson Plan accounts for the musings of the masses. Introduce a mutation such as Arizona's freshman guards mutating into 3-point assassins and the whole thing crumbles.
"We were trying to make the game ugly," MU sophomore guard Cullen VanLeer said. "We did a really good job of doing it in the first half. The second half, they got a little run and we didn’t respond on the other end with any buckets. The lead grew quickly, and we couldn’t get it back."
If only Kim had remained a Mule. Alas.
Women's basketball fared better, though!
The Tigers were down 21-20 at the half but outscored the Shockers 26-16 in the third quarter. Wichita State kept things close in the fourth quarter, but Missouri went on a 14-7 run in the last 5:50 in sealing the win.
You had a really, really good run, ladies
Mizzou, the No. 15 seed, evened the score after the second set but couldn’t match Minnesota’s firepower in sets three and four in the NCAA regional semifinal. The Gophers (28-4) took the match 25-15, 21-25, 25-19, 25-14 and advanced to Saturday’s regional final to face the winner of Friday’s late match between No. 7 seed North Carolina and No. 10 UCLA.
Wrestling stays rolling
Six wrestlers scored bonus points as No. 5 Mizzou Wrestling (3-1, 2-0 MAC) defeated Ohio (2-3, 1-1 MAC), 35-7, on Sunday morning in a Mid-American Conference dual. Among the six Tigers who produced bonus points, redshirt junior 125-pounder Aaron Assad (Brecksville, Ohio), redshirt freshman 133-pounder Jaydin Eierman (Columbia, Mo.) and redshirt sophomore 165-pounder Daniel Lewis (Blue Springs, Mo.) led the way with wins over ranked opponents.
