Mizzou Women’s Hoops picks up a game on the schedule

I clearly spent all my energy on yesterday’s APR thesis that undoubtedly most of you skipped over, so this will be brief. And there’s not a lot of news to discuss, anyway.

Mizzou Women’s Basketball may not have a full roster (or possibly staff?), but they do have an early scheduling tidbit.

The Tigers will take on the KSU Wildcats in the first annual Bill Snyder Classic in St. Joe. Why St. Joseph, MO, you ask? Well, that’s where Coach Snyder grew up! Per, this will be the 84th meeting between the Tigers, but the first in 6 years. K State leads the series 45-38, though Mizzou won the last three, all of which occurred with the same head coaches on hand.

Jeff Mittie (164-127) has now been with the Cats for a decade, while Robin Pingeton (225-181) — though many wish was no longer at the helm, sorry — will be in her 14th year. Coach Snyder, since the whole thing is named after him had two stints at KSU, from 1989-05 and again from 2009-18. He accumulated 215 wins during this time.

This season, K-State finished with a 19-17 record (5-13 in the Big 12), while Mizzou finished with an 18-14 record (6-10 in the SEC). You can read Adeen & Lauren’s season recap here.
