What's On

We'll talk plenty about the Black & Gold game later today, but just in case you couldn't wait any longer to see Faurot Field again...

So, to summarize...

There were 30K in attendance and no major injuries at the Black & Gold Game.

Basketball scored two commits.

Football scored one commit.

Baseball won another series and tied for the lead in the SEC East.

Softball absolutely trounced Arkansas and gave Ehren Earleywine his 400th Mizzou win.

Kyrsten Peoples set another school record.

Sophie Cunningham hugged Michael Jordan.

Mike Alden pushed stalled cars on Stadium Blvd.

That's ... one eventful weekend. Plus, there was actually news about the vacant basketball assistant coaching position!

The Trib: Each year's better than the last for Carroll

Time runs out on the average NBA career in less than five seasons.

There were doubts whether DeMarre Carroll would even make it that long. The Memphis Grizzlies traded him after using him in only seven games during his second season, and he was waived by the Houston Rockets and Denver Nuggets.

But the former Missouri star just wrapped up his sixth regular season, and it was his best one yet.

* He’s averaging a career-high 12.6 points.

* He’s posted career-best marks of 48.7 percent shooting from the field and 39.5 percent from 3-point range.

* His Atlanta Hawks have won a franchise-record 60 games and secured the No. 1 seed in the NBA’s Eastern Conference playoffs.
