Mizzou gets time off with cancellation of weekend softball tournament

By Karl Roskamp

After two consecutive weekend tournaments the No. 6 Missouri softball team got some unexpected time off this weekend.

The Tigers were slated to play four games, but the statewide snowstorm caused Southeast Missouri to cancel its Cancer Awareness Classic in Cape Girardeau.  Missouri was scheduled to face SEMO, Saint Louis, Missouri State, and UMKC.  It is unclear whether these games will be made up. Current Southeastern Conference standings show that Missouri has played about half as many games as the other schools in the league.

Florida 22-1
Missouri 9-1
Tennessee 19-3
Kentucky 16-3
South Carolina 12-3
Georgia 12-7

Alabama 22-0
Texas A&M 22-1
LSU 17-4
Miss St 13-4
Auburn 16-5
Arkansas 16-6
Ole Miss 16-9

The tournament would have been the final tune up for Missouri before its conference series opener at home against No. 9 Texas A&M this weekend.
