Beautiful end of game BLOB from the WNBA Champions @LVAces Head Coach @BeckyHammon. The Aces set a wide stagger, slipping the bottom screener allowing for a game-tying layup in the semi-finals of the WNBA Playoffs! Elite Execution. Great X’s & O’s!#SituationSunday pic.twitter.com/gdIaa6SJkU— Dennis Gates (@coachdgates) September 25, 2022

- Tough beat for Mizzou Soccer, which dropped its second straight conference game in a 2-0 loss to Vanderbilt on Sunday. Coach Golan had strong words of encouragement for her players afterword.
Absolutely gutted for our group today…very unfortunate result. We are right there & we get to decide how we respond…a lot of season left & everything we want is still in front of us and within our reach. We just have to fight for it. Every. Single. Day. #MIZ #TakeTheStairs— Stefanie Kraay Golan (@MIZCoachGolan) September 25, 2022
