Softball eliminated in Fayetteville.

Mizzou Softball hasn’t missed the NCAA Tournament since 2006, but that maybe in question after Larissa Anderson’s Tigers were eliminated at the SEC Tournament in Fayetteville with a 7-2 loss to No. 5 seed Alabama on Wednesday night.

The Tigers finished the season with a record of 34-24 overall with a D1 Softball RPI in the Top 40s – so they still resemble a quality club with certainly chance of making a regional. With a non-conference record of 26-6 and the only SEC team that finished undefeated in midweek games – there are still some positive credentials on that resume. ($$) According to D1Softball’s latest projection — Missouri is listed as a No. 3 seed in the Norman Regional.

The Tigers will learn their postseason fate on Selection Sunday as the Selection Show airs at 6:00 p.m. CST on ESPN2. Stay tuned for that.

There have been reported rumors about Brown entering the transfer portal — but here’s what Sam Snelling had to say about that:
