What a Night for Mizzou Players in the Pros!

Mizzou Links for Wednesday, September 16

What a night for Mizzou in the Pros! EVERYBODY gets a win!

First up, what an excellent Major League debut for Boston Red Sox starter, Tanner Houck! Mizzou Baseball really amped up their excitement of his debut, with messages from a slew of former Tigers, including one from MIGHTY MAX and another with former teammates, Kyle Gibson, Padres coach Jayce Tingler, and Ian Kinsler. Also, Tanner Houck is a really good dude...

Aside from Tanner, Soph and MPJ also had important games tonight, though they were pretty quiet in their team’s respective awesomeness. Still, how cool for them.

Next up, MPJ and the Nuggets are heading to the Western Conference Finals with their unbelievable win over the heavily favored Clippers. According to ESPN’s Rachel Nichols in the postgame broadcast, this is the first time in the 74-year history of the NBA for a team to come back from down 3-1 in a series TWICE. They will face the Lakers on Friday at 8pm (insert eyes emoji).

As for Mike’s stats, he played 15 minutes, only taking two shots, with 7 rebounds and 2 points and was +/- 1 (the only starter in the positive). Here’s the recap from the Missourian.

Last up, Sophie and her Mercury team pulled off a win on Tuesday night to advance to the Second Round of the WNBA Playoffs, beating the Washington Mystics 85-84. As for Soph’s stats, she played only 8 minutes, scoring 0 points with 1 rebound.

What a great day to be a (former) Tiger!
