Utah forward Jakoby Kemp committed to Missouri on Tuesday evening. Kemp's AAU coach (per the Columbia Tribune): "He’s very skilled right now as a barely 18-year-old, so development-wise, the sky’s the limit."
Mizzou Softball prepares to host a rugged, even NCAA regional. The Tigers' first game is Thursday night against BYU and an ace Ehren Earleywine calls "the best pitcher here." Earleywine also talked about Mizzou's conduct investigation.
Good, detailed read. After a bit of a reset this year (which still resulted in a top-six finish), Mizzou returns quite a bit next winter. "On paper this team has 9 proven wrestlers who will almost all be ranked to begin the year. With a likely champ and a few other finalist contenders, if Missouri puts everything together in St. Louis next year (how fortuitous for the Tigers), they could challenge PSU, Ohio State and Iowa."
Tramaine Isabell and D'Angelo Allen provided a major spark for Missouri against Auburn. Also: Mizzou Wrestling pulled off a magic act with a late comeback against Cornell to keep a 35-dual win streak alive.
