Everything started out so bright for the Missouri volleyball team. The Tigers were ranked in the top 15 and battling for the Big 12 title. Then all of a sudden things came crashing down. Things hit rock bottom Wednesday as Mizzou lost to Texas A&M in a sweep, 30-24, 30-20, 30-27. The only good to come out of the match for Missouri was Tatum Ailes tied the school record for career digs with 1,372.
Nicole Wilson led the Tigers with 13 kills. She also recorded two blocks and six digs. Senior Jessica Vander Kooi had her usual double-double with 10 kills and 12 digs.
But the Aggies (12-16, 5-15) were too tough at home. Freshman Mary Batis had a game-high 15 kills, adding 14 digs and an ace. Senior Christi Hahn finished her collegiate career with 14 kills, four blocks, and an ace.
Mizzou brings their regular-season to an end on Friday with a home match against Texas Tech. It will be Senior Night for the Tigers. Missouri will learn of their post season fate Sunday during the NCAA Selection Show.
