Mizzou Women’s Basketball was selected to finish fifth in the Southeastern Conference Tuesday by a select voting panel of both SEC and national media members as the league office announced its 2018-19 SEC Preseason Media Poll. In addition, senior Sophie Cunningham (Columbia, Mo.) was one of seven players selected to the Preseason All-SEC team.
Mizzou was picked to finish fifth behind Mississippi State, South Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia. Each team picked ahead of the Tigers advanced to the NCAA Tournament last season, with South Carolina making the Elite Eight and Mississippi State ending the season as the runner-up.
Cunningham was one of three players to receive votes for the Preseason SEC Women’s Basketball Player of the Year award, which ended up going to Mississippi State’s Teaira McCowan.
Cunningham averaged 18.5 points and 4.7 rebounds per game in her junior campaign, and was the only player in the nation to shoot better than 54 percent from the field (54.2 percent, 186-for-343), 45 percent from three (45.7 percent, 69-for-151) and 83 percent from the free throw line (83.6 percent, 133-for-159). She scored in double figures in 28 of 31 games she played in, and ranked fourth in the NCAA in three-point percentage as she earned AP All-America Honorable Mention honors for the second consecutive season.
As a team last season, Mizzou earned a third consecutive NCAA Tournament berth for the first time since 1984-86. Head Coach Robin Pingeton’ssquad won 11 conference games for the second straight season, the first back-to-back seasons with 11 plus conference wins since 1983-84 and 1984-85. Mizzou is 13-3 at home against SEC opponents in the past two seasons.

Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak announced Tuesday that St. Louis Cardinals third base coach Jose Oquendo would like to find a coaching opportunity that would allow him to work near his home in Jupiter, Fla. Oquendo informed the club a week after the season ended that he will leave manager Mike Shildt’s coaching staff to take on an instruction role with Minor League players. He’ll work primarily out of the club’s Florida complex.
Ron “Pop” Warner, who took over as bench coach in July, will be installed as the new third-base coach. Oliver Marmol, the team’s first-base coach last year, will become Shildt’s bench coach. Mozeliak also said Stubby Clapp will likely be promoted.
The fan who threw a beer in the face of Chiefs’ wide receiver Tyreek Hill is facing two charges after Hill’s 75-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter. The fan was initially banned from Gillette Stadium only, but law enforcement later charged him with disorderly conduct and throwing an object at a sporting event.
Barry Odom said on St. Louis Radio 590 The Fan that wide receiver Emanuel Hall will not play this week. He’s missed the last two weeks with a groin injury but is still the team’s leading receiver with 18 catches and 430 yards.
Memphis has the nation’s top running back. Darrell Henderson leads all running back with 1133 yards. He’s averaging over ten yards per carry and rushed for 199 yards against Central Florida, coached by former Missouri coordinator Josh Heupel.
One chick, one dude…they live in the apartment complex in St. Louis. Instead of working together on a civil resolution that would take five minutes to solve, they both become strong headed stubborn leading to one of them losing their job. Its the hyper-sensitive world that’s become the norm.
The Kansas City Chiefs a 43-40 decision to the Patriots on a Stephen Gostkowski 28-yard field goal as time expired. Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw for 352 yards and four touchdown passes, three of them to Tyreek Hill. Kareem Hunt rushed for 80 yards on 10 carries and caught five passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in defeat. Tremon Smith returned a kickoff 97 yards to set up a Chiefs’ fourth-quarter touchdown.
Tom Brady completed 11 of his first 15 passes as New England opened a 24-9 lead, but Mahomes engineered drives by moving out of the pocket and hitting some deep passes downfield. After starting the season with 14 touchdown passes compared to zero interceptions, Mahomes hit a small bump in the road, throwing four picks with no TDs. That changed Sunday night.
“The last two weeks it seems like we just can’t punch it in there and I feel like the second half we finally started getting it in the end zone,” Mahomes said.
There was only one punt in the game. For the second year in a row, the Chiefs started a season 5-0. Last year, they lost six of their final 11 games. “We will learn a lot from this game,” he said. “We kind of shot ourselves in the foot a little bit early and you can’t do that against a good football team.”
The teams combined for 946 yards. The Chiefs were held to just 94 rushing yards.
Center Mitch Morse was evaluated for a concussion in the second quarter and did not return.
The Chiefs return home this coming Sunday night against the Bengals.
Andrew Cogliano took advantage of the power play and scored at 14:44 of the third period as the Ducks beat the Blues 3-2 in St. Louis. Jakob Silfverberg and Ben Street also lit the lamp for Anaheim, which got two assists from Hampus Lindholm. Ryan Miller finished with 29 saves as the Ducks improved to 4-1-and-1. Chad Johnson stopped 28-of-31 shots he faced in the loss.
Robert Bortuzzo left Sunday’s game with a lower-body injury and did not return. Head Coach Mike Yeo said Bortuzzo has been dealing with a nagging injury since training camp.
Alexander Steen and Tyler Bozak scored in the second to put the Blues ahead 2-1. St. Louis slipped to 1-2-and-2 after the team’s 4-3 loss to the Blackhawks in OT on Saturday night in Chicago. The Blues were nine seconds away from a shootout before Alex DeBrincat scored the game winner.
In that game, the Blues spotted the Hawks a 2-0 first-period lead.
