NCAA Wrestling Championships begin Thursday; Missouri’s contingent ready to roll
Oh is there another tournament that gets underway today?
The NCAA Wrestling Championships begin in Pittsburgh on Thursday; Missouri will be represented by nine wrestlers.
Missouri’s best bet for an individual national title is Daniel Lewis, seeded No. 2 at 174-pounds. Lewis is 24-1 on the season. The only weight class at which Missouri is not represented is 197 pounds.
The NCAA hasn’t done many things right lately, but it DOES have a pretty comprehensive landing page to follow along with updates from Pittsburgh. Session I starts at 11 a.m. CT Thursday and will be aired on ESPNU and WatchESPN.com; Session II starts at 6 p.m. CT and will be aired on ESPN and WatchESPN.com.
Missouri baseball came to life in game two against Murray State
After getting swept by Arkansas over the weekend and then beating Murray State just 2-1 in the series opening on Tuesday, Missouri (13-8) exploded against the Racers in a 14-1 win on Wednesday.
Missouri hit three home runs courtesy of Kameron Misner (3-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs), Peter Zimmerman (2-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs) and Josh “Steve” Holt Jr. (1-for-3, 3 RBIs).
Missouri now gets three games with Ole Miss, starting on Friday. The good news? It’s at home, where the Tigers are 8-0 this season.
Missouri softball loses momentum, game against Bradley
After taking two-of-three from No. 8 Georgia over the weekend, Missouri softball hosted Bradley for a mid-week game — and lost, 8-1.
That’s a tough result after the positives from the weekend series against the Bulldogs, in which Missouri (13-12) dropped the first game but won the final two.
Missouri won’t have long to erase this one; the Tigers travel to Lexington to face 13th-ranked Kentucky in a three-game series this weekend.
Missouri’s Pro Day is Thursday; parts will be aired on the NFL Network
Interested in watching guys throw against air or run in straight lines for about 40 yards? Boy do I have good news for you!
Missouri’s Pro Day begins at 9 a.m. CT Thursday; at 10 a.m., NFL Network will air live from the event — entirely because of Drew Lock, obviously.
Speaking of Lock:
