The Cowboys have won games against three of the top-five teams in the Big 12.
Forward Justin Safford finds a place, and a musical pursuit, in his first year as a Tiger.
Former Tiger Ron Jones has trained his daughter Shakara, a freshman starter for the Missouri basketball team, since she was in the third grade.
Columbia native Carl Edwards won the rain-delayed Auto Club 500 Sprint Cup race on Monday, finishing ahead of Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon. “I hope it’s an indication we’ve caught up with them,” Edwards said after the eighth victory of his career.
When Rock Bridge senior Sam Thompson grabbed the Class 5, District 10 championship trophy from Rock Bridge athletic director Jennifer Mast, Jefferson City fans had to be confused who the 6-foot-4 player with sandy blond hair was.
For most of Rock Bridge’s 53-39 win over the Jays on Sunday at Rock Bridge, Thompson could be found sitting between assistant coaches David Egan and Travis Gable grabbing a forest green towel, sometimes even chewing on it when the Jays (15-11) cut the lead to less than 10 points with three minutes to go.
Nobody thought it would be this long until the Tigers had that winning feeling again.
But for a season-high 2,704 fans who came out to see the Missouri women’s basketball team beat Kansas 62-59 on Sunday, in the latest installment of the Border Showdown at Mizzou Arena, the victory was more than welcome.

The most recent example of the importance of the MU men's basketball team's bench came Saturday when non-starters scored 32 of Missouri’s 60 points in its victory against Colorado.
Ethan Froese crossed the finish line in Sunday’s Froze Toes cycling race with a simple fist pump, nearly a minute ahead of his closest competitor.
Froese’s victory is representative of a Columbia family synonymous with cycling in mid-Missouri.
A game decided in the final 30 seconds is supposed to be exciting. But Saturday’s game at Mizzou Arena didn’t feel like a closely contested game until about two minutes to play. Before that, Tigers' 60-53 victory over Colorado felt more like a badminton match or a golf tournament.
DeMarre Carroll played 25 minutes Saturday in Missouri’s 60-53 win over Colorado and scored his first and only basket with 3:25 left. Needless to say, his ankle is still hurting him.
The Missouri women's basketball team is last in the Big 12 Conference in free-throw shooting percentage this season at 62.7 percent, and opponents have 91 more attempts and have made 111 more free throws than the Tigers.
