Texas snapped Missouri’s four-match winning streak Wednesday night in Austin.

Missouri dropped to 10-5 on the season and 5-3 in the Big 12 Conference.

No. 9 Texas won in three games 33-31, 30-22 and 30-23.

Shen Danru inched closer to Missouri’s all-time kills record. She had seven on Wednesday. She is currently in third place with 1,150 career kills, just 328 behind the record holder, Yvette Buhlig.

The Tigers have now lost back-to-back matches in Texas after defeating the Longhorns seven consecutive times.

The Longhorns (16-0, 8-0) will travel to Columbia for a rematch on Nov. 14.


The Stars finished their season with a loss to Harris-Stowe.

Freda West led Stephens with nine kills and Sara Warren and Alisha Gay had eight assists each in the match.

Harris-Stowe won 30-21, 30-19 and 30-16.

“We just really couldn’t get on a roll tonight,” coach Dane Pavlovich said.

Warren and West each had two aces. West also had two blocks.

The Stars tripled their win total from last year and finished the season 6-11.


The Tigers will travel to Indiana State for an NCAA Pre-National meet Saturday.

The event, to be held in Terre Haute, is designed to preview the championship course.

The Tiger women will run at 11 a.m. against 12 other ranked teams, including conference rivals Baylor and Texas Tech. Top-ranked Stanford will also participate.

The Tiger men will run in an 8-kilometer race beginning at 12:50 p.m. No. 2 Stanford, No. 8 North Carolina State and No. 9 Notre Dame will also participate in the men’s event.

“We’re starting to come together as a team and we are looking forward to line up against the best teams in the country in this meet, the first step of the championship season,” coach Jared Wilmes said.


Cosmopolitan Park will be the site for the annual Columbia Pride Fall Invitational soccer tournament this weekend, which organizers say is expected to bring 1,000 youth players to the city.

The tournament will feature 66 teams from five separate states and 12 different age divisions.

The games will begin Friday at 5:30 p.m. On Saturday, games are set from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. On Sunday, games will begin at 8 a.m. and end by 5 p.m.
