A good day to be a Missouri Tiger.

First things first, welcome BACK, Aidan Shaw! The four-star, top-60 forward from the Overland Park, Kansas area has re-committed to Mizzou, in case if you somehow missed it.

Shaw became the third commitment for Missouri under the Dennis Gates era joining Mohamed Diarra and DeAndre Gholston, and a much needed one after losing Trevon Brazile to Arkansas. Ranked No. 52 on 247Sports and No. 58 on Rivals, Shaw is the highest rated Mizzou recruit since 2017 in, of course, Michael Porter Jr.

“Gates has been making me a priority since he got the job,” Shaw told Eric Bossi of 247Sports.

More from Shaw, via Bossi’s article on 247Sports:

“The Mizzou fans have been showing me love on my socials and I know I’m wanted there. I think everything fell in place for a reason and again the people wanted me to remember to stay. I feel great.”

More from Josh Matejka in a bit.

On the diamond, Mizzou Softball improved to 23-13 overall on the season with a relatively easy 5-1 win over the Kansas City Roos, stretching their winning streak to four games. Cassidy Chaumont had a big two-run HR in the bottom of the 3rd and Laurin Krings pitched five strong innings of one-run ball and nine strikeouts.

It’s onto Starkville for a three-game series at Mississippi State Friday through Sunday. The Bulldogs have been receiving votes in some polls.

And in a sellout crowd of 3,031 at Taylor Stadium, Mizzou Baseball got it done. That’s right, your Missouri Tigers have beaten the kansas Jayhawks! A nice rivalry win for BieserBall,

Any win over kU is certainly nice, especially after what happened on Monday night. Meanwhile, this Mizzou team is actually looking pretty dang good. The Tigers improved to 15-2 in non-conference play and have won six out of their last eight games. A 3-6 start in league play isn’t exactly great, but not disastrous by any means in the toughest conference in the country. The Tigers have bounced back nicely after getting swept at Vanderbilt.

Up next for Mizzou is a daunting task as the Tigers travel to Knoxville to play No. 1 Tennessee Friday through Sunday. Tony Vitello’s Vols are a ridiculous 28-1 and have won 20 in a row. Getting just one win at UT would be huge.

Onto the links. M-I-Z!
