COLUMBIA — For four years Nicole Wilson was a force for the Missouri volleyball team. At 6 feet, 3 inches tall, she used her height to dominate play at the net and become the Tigers’ all-time leader in hitting percentage and blocks per game. This year, Wilson will play for the Missouri women’s basketball team and coach Cindy Stein hopes the former middle blocker will be able to provide strong play in the post for a team that lost much of its height to graduation.
