The Trib: Phillips becomes man of the moment

In a one-possession game against Mississippi two weeks ago, it was Clark who had the responsibility of creating or taking the final shots. Rather than making up his mind to shoot — as you might expect of someone with a new responsibility in a stressful situation — Phillips kept his options open as he drove the baseline. He noticed Walton cutting to the hoop and found his fellow freshman for a layup.

It was a play that gave Missouri the leverage to put the game away with a few free throws. The Tigers got to experience an SEC winning streak. It was a rare moment of joy in a difficult season. It was a sign of progress.

The Trib: Day 2 of SEC meet features blistering times, including an American record, in the 50 freestyle

Chadwick clocked a time of 19.23 seconds in Wednesday’s finals, which was .01 seconds faster than the pool record entering the day, a record set in 2009 by Jimmy Feigan, a future Olympic silver medalist who at the time was competing for Texas.

Chadwick placed third. Two lanes over from him, Dressel won the race in 18.23 seconds.

That time was good for more than a pool record. It was also an SEC record, an NCAA record and an American record, along with being the fastest time posted in that event by any swimmer on U.S. soil. Dressel broke his own records, because he clocked an 18.39 earlier in the day in prelims.
