The Missouri men’s golf team finished third out of 13 schools at the Missouri Bluffs Challenge Tuesday in St. Charles.

The Tigers were tied for first with Miami of Ohio going into the final 18 holes, but Memphis, which entered the final round two strokes back, posted an 11-under 273 to jump both teams.

Memphis was led by Andy Shiels’ tournament-record-tying 6-under 65.

Junior Ben Scott was the top Tiger golfer, finishing in a tie for third at 4-under 209.

All five of Missouri’s scoring golfers finished in the top 25.

The Tigers’ fall season ends after The Nelson, hosted by Stanford, on Oct. 22-24.

COLUMBIA COLLEGE VOLLEYBALL: The Cougars defeated Harris-Stowe State College Tuesday 30-17, 30-17, 30-4.

Sophomore Doris Wefwafwa led Columbia College with 14 kills. Senior Jacqueline Makokha had 13 kills, eight aces and 21 digs. Junior Tracy Branson added 37 assists.

The Cougars improve to 22-3 with the win. They are now preparing for the Houston Baptist University Invitational this weekend in Houston.

HICKMAN BASKETBALL: The Kewpies’ boys and girls basketball teams are sponsoring an all-you-can-eat spaghetti fundraiser Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m. at Hickman High School.

Tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for children.

Proceeds from the event will go towards travel costs for the teams’ seasons.

SOONER INJURED: Cornerback Antonio Perkins, the NCAA record-holder for punt return touchdowns in a game, will miss three to four weeks with a knee injury, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said Tuesday.

Stoops said Perkins sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee during Oklahoma’s 12-0 win against Texas on Saturday.

Perkins, the Sooners’ starting left cornerback, will be replaced by junior college transfer Chijioke Onyenegecha.

In the No. 2 Sooners’ first five games, Onyenegecha has split time at right cornerback with Eric Bassey. Stoops said Onyenegecha shouldn’t have trouble adjusting.

“He just does everything on the left instead of the right,” Stoops said. “That’s not a big deal.”

Perkins, who returned three punts for touchdowns against UCLA last season, tied the career mark earlier this season with his eighth punt-return touchdown.

Oklahoma plays at Kansas State on Saturday.
