After 113 pitches, Kyle Smith had to throw one more. A strike would win the game for Hickman, a ball would load the bases, and a hit would most likely tie the game.

Pinkel expects results

If Missouri is a consensus pick to make a run at the Big 12 Conference title next season, it did not affect how coach Gary Pinkel ran his spring practices.

Hundreds of seniors played women’s college basketball last season, but only a few get a chance to continue playing the game professionally.

Evan Unrau, who completed an outstanding four-year career at Missouri in March, has an opportunity to extend her career at the game’s highest level. The Washington Mystics drafted Unrau with 28th pick in what some analysts are calling the deepest WNBA Draft in the league’s eight-year history.
