Tough start for the women's basketball team so far. The Tigers fought hard but just came up short against Indiana on Friday night at FedExForum, then trailed the entire game against Murray State before falling on Sunday at the Elma Roane Fieldhouse.
Sometimes a change of scenery can be good, and hopefully that plays out when we face Missouri in Columbia tomorrow at 6:30. Columbia is one of the great college towns and I'll be close to where I moved when I graduated Memphis.
Just about 30 miles north is Moberly, home of the MACC Greyhounds. The Hounds are one of the elite Junior Colleges in basketball , coach's who have been there include Cottom Fitzimmons and Charlie Spoonhour, NBA All-Star Mitch Richmond got his start there as well.
As I said, this is the first road trip for the women's team, so I'm sure everyone is like me, making sure they have everything they need.
