Mizzou Gymnastics stays put at No. 9 in latest rankings, Honnold named to Softball America’s Preseason All-American

Mizzou Links for Tuesday, January 30

After a statement win over No. 3 LSU on Friday night — Mizzou Gymnastics unfortunately stays put at No. 9 in the latest rankings.

However, that was to be expected — as Matt Michaels explains the gymnastics ranking system for those that are unaware. (Editor’s note: or you can read Karen’s tweets and gymnastics posts in which she clearly explains this in detail...)

From, the Tigers in their rotations rank 5th on the vault, 6th on the floor, 15th on beam, and 16th on bars.

On KTGR — hear from head coach Shannon Welker after their win over No. 3 LSU.

Up next: Shannon Welker’s squad is at Texas Women’s University on Saturday at 6 pm — and Karen Steger will certainly have you covered here on Rock M Nation.

Meanwhile, from the latest softball preseason accolades, senior center fielder Alex Honnold has been named a Preseason Second Team All-American by Softball America.

Your first chance to see Honnold in action is at the Black and Gold game on Saturday at 12 pm in COMO.

Plus, can men’s hoops get their first SEC win at home on Wednesday night? Perhaps they have a good chance against a reeling Arkansas team. Despite being 0-7 in the league right now, Southeastern 14 currently ranks the Tigers ahead of the Razorbacks in their latest power rankings. Muss Struggle Bus, amiright?!

Trent Pierce and Anthony Robinson II will be available for Wednesday’s game vs Arkansas — per Dennis Gates on Tiger Talk:

Noah Carter has also announced that there will be a whiteout at Mizzou Arena.

Onto the links. M-I-Z!
