The women’s basketball team is. That’s for sure.
They’re more than ready, actually. They’re eager!
The Tigers’ strong regular-season earned a double-bye into the quarterfinals against the winner of Thursday’s game between No. 6 seed Texas A&M or No. 11 seed Florida, which knocked off Arkansas 71-61 in Wednesday’s opening round.
“We’re going to acknowledge the fact that being a three seed is pretty cool and having a double-bye is something we haven’t done here in a long time,” senior guard Lindsey Cunningham said. “That is a great step for our program, so that’s really cool, but we’re not satisfied. We haven’t won an SEC tournament game yet, so that’s another thing we want to check off our list.”
Mizzou isn’t approaching its quarterfinal game, which is scheduled to tip off around 7:30 p.m. CT on the SEC Network, like a heavy favorite.
Worry not, folks. Our friends at the conference will have surely cleaned out the SEC basketball fever beforehand.
- In other positive post-season knews, the swimming team is doing pretty well.
Nine Missouri swimmers will compete in individual events at the women’s NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships from March 15-18, the NCAA announced on Wednesday. The top 16 swimmers in each individual event score points at the meet.
