Big Weekend on Tap in COMO.
Mizzou Women’s Basketball has set the stage heading towards a big weekend in COMO. In a make-or-break season under head coach Robin Pingeton, the Tigers are off to a 2-0 start with two wins over MVC opponents (Belmont and Indiana State). In a 98-57 win over the Sycamores, Ashton Judd led the team with 31 points.
Up next: The Tigers are at SLU on Sunday afternoon — and the Billikens lost 78-66 to Drake in their season opener.
Drake beats SLU 78-66 in the Billikens' season opener. Kyla McMakin scored 20 to lead SLU. SLU was outrebounded by 11 and had 22 turnovers.— stu durando (@studurando) November 10, 2023
Moving onto tonight — it all starts at 6:00 at the Hearnes Center as Mizzou Volleyball looks to improve their NCAA Tournament resume against Texas A&M, continuing their five-game home stand. The Tigers host the Aggies as both teams are currently tied for fifth place in the SEC standings.
Your Tigers (15-9, 7-6 SEC) continue their five-match homestand this weekend, hosting Texas A&M (15-8, 7-6 SEC) on Friday, followed by #24 Auburn (18-6, 8-5 SEC) on Sunday!! #MIZ https://t.co/FeIRbJ79GJ— Mizzou Volleyball (@MizzouVB) November 9, 2023
From the Hearnes Center to Mizzou Arena, Mizzou Basketball immediately follows Mizzou Volleyball. Missouri takes on the Penny Hardaway-less Memphis Tigers in an early season measuring stick game which could bode well for the NCAA Tournament resume come March — as this will very likely be a Quad 1 or Quad 2 opportunity.
Jimmy Dykes, who will be on the SEC Network call — says it’s a sneaky good game between “two teams destined for the NCAA Tournament.”
And on Saturday afternoon with a 2:30 p.m. CST kick-off on CBS — No. 14 Mizzou hosts No. 13 Tennessee in a key SEC East showdown.
Here’s what Mizzou Football is wearing for Veteran’s Day:
Nate Edwards and Brandon Kiley preview the much-anticipated game on the Before the Box Score podcast.
Then on Sunday, the weekend wraps up with volleyball hosting No. 24 Auburn — 3:00 p.m. CST on SEC Network-Plus.
Beat Memphis. Beat Tennessee. Beat Texas A&M. Beat Auburn. Let’s have a weekend, Tigers!
