The Tigers will face eight teams that appeared in the NCAA Tournament last year and three teams that played in the Women’s National Invitational Tournament.

Brad Smith had security.
Whenever Smith was in trouble last season, Justin Gage was usually there to bail him out. This season Smith has yet to find a go-to receiver.
For the third straight year, the Missouri-Kansas matchup will end the regular season of both basketball teams, but it may not be the best matchup on Missouri’s 2003-04 schedule.
Hickman’s Stefani Worley called her pitching performance against Smith-Cotton on Wednesday her worst of the season. Fortunately for the Kewpies, her worst was still good enough to win.

During the summer, Hickman girls’ golf coach Doug Steinhoff asked his team if it wanted to have fun or work hard to earn a state berth. Six matches into the season, the Kewpies are proving they can have both.

MUNCIE, Ind. — After a relatively easy win against Ball State on Saturday, Missouri receiver Darius Outlaw sounded quite familiar. Outlaw was his usual, jovial self, but the serious tone of what he was saying sounded much like MU coach Gary Pinkel.
Attitudes are changing around the Tigers, and each week it becomes more evident. Missouri improved to 2-0 with its 35-7 rout, and for the first time since 1975 opened the season with consecutive road wins. Most teams would be thrilled to start the season with a pair of wins and a legitimate chance to start the season 5-0,but not this team.
