Images of the Rock Bridge boy's basketball team, the Oaktown Steppers and shoppers at Cool Stuff were among the best Missourian staff photos last week.

Stephens College hosted a prom-themed fashion show Saturday for high schoolers. In this photo taken by Elizabeth Pierson, models at the [project] PROM Fashion Show change outfits between scenes. 

In this photo taken by Timmy Huynh, Rock Bridge basketball players celebrate their 70-49 win over Hickman at the Class 5 District 9 boy's basketball championship at Smith-Cotton High School on Friday. 

Members of the Oaktown Steppers performed at "Walking in Greatness," a Black History Month program at Lange Middle School Tuesday. Alyssa Goodman took this photo of Montiera Ferrell-Nelson, 13, who has been stepping for one year. 

Sam Gause took this photo of two-year-old Brynna Shettlesworth as she tried on a mask in Cool Stuff on Thursday. Cool Stuff's owner, Arnie Fagan, said he would close the store and force next door neighbor Hot Box Cookies to move in order to make room for Rally House, a national college and professional recreation apparel store. 

The Missouri women's swimming team will compete in the NCAA Championships next month after winning the 200-yard freestyle relay at the Big 12 Swimming and Diving Championship on Thursday. In this photo taken by Colleen Archibald, teammates (from left) Cassie Cunningham, Emily Doucette, Shara Stafford and Lisa Nathanson celebrate their win in the relay. 

Immediately following Missouri's 87-86 loss to Kansas, Andrew Mitchell took this photo of a devastated Michael Dixon. Missouri led by 19 points in the second half before losing in overtime.
