After 3-0 loss to Auburn, Missouri softball awaits its postseason fate

Missouri’s run in the SEC Tournament was short lived as the Tigers were bounced by Auburn in the first round on Wednesday night. Auburn got a strong complete-game shutout effort from Chardonnay Harris, as Maddie Norman was the tough-luck loser for Missouri, pitching a complete-game of her own in the loss.

Final Stats: Auburn 3, Missouri 0

Auburn robbed Missouri defensively a few times after going up 1-0 in the first inning; a two-run home run by Morgan Podany in the fifth produced the final scoreline.

Missouri did a little robbing of its own, too.

A disappointing end for Missouri’s regular season, undoubtedly, but the Tigers will be a time to watch in the NCAA postseason. Missouri (32-23) will find out its destination on Sunday.

Missouri hoops raises APR, can finally put Frank Haith’s roster turnover behind them

The latest APR came out on Wednesday, and Missouri’s four-year average jumped to 953, according to Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. This is despite the year-over-year number falling from 955 to 953.

The reason for that jump in four-year average (932 to 953)?

An insane 851 mark from 2013-2014 is finally off the books.

Last year, the Tigers were on the brink of sanctions. Teams that produce four-year averages that dip below 930 are eligible for penalties, including postseason bans. Mizzou’s low score for 2013-14 reflected the roster overhaul in Frank Haith’s final year as coach.

So, the effects of the Frank Haith regime can finally be put to bed.
