COLUMBIA — The sun was going down at the courts outside the Green Tennis Center when Missouri freshman tennis player Maureen Modesto was in the middle of her third set with Kansas State’s Natasha Viera. All eyes were on the Tigers’ No. 5 singles player, as her individual match was the last in the teams’ match that had lasted over six hours.
