Welp.

That didn’t go as we had hoped, now did it? However, Sammy reminded us that this just happens sometimes. Mizzou is no different than many other teams in college basketball this year.

Keep that in mind as you shout, “Fire Cuonzo! You suck!” onto the court on your way out of the arena... (yeah, that happened, and I was predictably not amused). So yes, you’re frustrated. I get it. This team is maddening at times. Ole Miss seemingly has our number, X didn’t really show up, Dru had another icky game, the basket seemed to have a lid on it, the team played what looked like a game of hot potato on several possessions... but what are you going to do about it? Move on with your life, and on to the next one. We’re still in the tourney. All hope is not lost.

I have actually never seen Frozen, but it fits in this regard

This concludes Karen’s basketball thoughts. You can read the post-mortem in Sam’s Study Hall or in Kortay’s game story.

Moving on to happier things! The Men’s SEC Swimming Championships are in town, and Mizzou did really well on Tuesday evening!

To the hype video! Sigh... this makes me miss swimming.

The 4x200 Free Relay team earned their NCAA A-Cut and finished fourth. YAY!

For swimming newbies, A-cuts are automatic NCAA Championship berths, whereas the B-cuts only get invited if there are not enough of those with A-cuts competing to fill the field.

Way to go, Frederik! Only a freshman and already 5th all-time in the 200 free (my personal fave)!

From Coach Andrew Grevers, per MUTigers.com’s night 1 recap, on his team’s performance:

”What great momentum to finish tonight’s session. We had some big lifetime bests for some individuals in the 800 free relay. We’re going to ride that momentum into tomorrow morning.”
