Everywhere you looked on Thursday, you saw Mizzou Hoops social media posts. From men’s picture day and the release of the SEC tv schedule to the first day of practice for the women, there was A LOT going on, and being the gigantic hoops fan I am, I was THRILLED.

First up, PICTURE DAY! Lookin good, fellas!

Next up, a day after the women’s SEC tv schedule was released, the men followed suit.

According to MUTigers.com:

The Tigers schedule is highlighted by a Feb. 5 matchup at Texas A&M on ESPN2 and an additional three games on ESPNU. All 18 conference games will be on national television across the ESPN family of networks, including the SEC Network. The announcement follows yesterday’s Big 12/SEC Challenge announcement, which slates the Tigers matchup against Iowa State on Jan. 29 at 1 p.m. on ESPNU.

From my perusal, it looks like all games will be on the SEC Network, with the exception of at Ole Miss on January 18 (ESPNU), at South Carolina on March 1 (ESPNU), and the aforementioned games against Texas A&M (ESPN2) and Iowa State (ESPNU). We’ll have to wait to see tv networks for Mizzou’s other marquee matchups, including the Border War return against Kansas on December 11, and the Braggin Rights game on December 22.

Then, it was time for Robin Pingeton’s squad to suit up for their first official practice.

On to the Links! Best wishes to the Tigers tomorrow!

Football

“Mizzou has been an important part of our lives, and we are excited to be able to partner with Coach Drinkwitz and the Department of Athletics on their vision for the football program. I have always thought athletics was an integral part of the University experience and this project continues the work which was started with the beautiful South End Zone Facility” — Brad Stephens

Mizzou in the Pros News

  • Game Two of WNBA semis took place Thursday evening, with Sophie Cunningham’s Phoenix Mercury beating down the Las Vegas Aces 117-91 behind unbelievable performances of Brittany Griner and the GOAT, Diana Taurasi. As for Sophie’s performance, she contributed a lot while on the floor, even if it wasn’t necessarily on the stat sheet. In her 12 minutes off the bench, she scored 2 points (1-3 FG, 0-2 from three) with 1 rebound and was +10. Game Three will be on Sunday in Phoenix, though not at their arena AGAIN because of Disney on Ice… SMDH.
