Head Coach Brian Hoffer takes the men into Lawrence seeking revenge on No. 18 Texas A&M
Oct. 23, 2008
The No. 21 Missouri men's swimming and diving team travels to Lawrence, Kan., for a busy weekend of events. The Tigers will open their dual season against the No. 21 Texas A&M Aggies on Thursday night, beginning at 6 p.m. CT, and will take on the rest of the conference in the Big 12 Relays on Friday, starting at 9 a.m. CT.
Last Time They Met
Last season, the Tigers upended the Aggies during the regular season, defeating Texas A&M 132-111. The victory was the first dual victory for the Tigers on the young season.
The men's team enters the dual against the Aggies looking for revenge for last year's Big 12 Championships. Missouri held second-place over Texas A&M after the third session, before getting in a back-and-forth battle on day four. The Tigers were edged out by Texas A&M in the final event, giving the Aggies 788 points and a second-place finish. Missouri finished the meet with 785 points.
(The First) Battle of the Big 12
Following the season-opening dual with Texas A&M, Missouri will join together with the rest of the conference's teams for the Big 12 Relays. Last season, Missouri's men placed third, scoring 76 points and finishing just two points behind Texas A&M.
Welcome to the Big Show
Mizzou freshmen got their first taste of NCAA action last Saturday with the Show Me Showdown, and many shined in their Tiger debut. John Higgins turned in a pair of fourth-place finishes, one in the 50 back (24.56) and another in the 100 back (52.16). Jan Konarzewski won his first collegiate event, finishing the 50 back in 24.35). Michael Lopresti also finished in fourth-place twice, finishing the 50 breast in 27.27 and the 100 breast in 59.12. Scott Martin claimed third in the 100 fly (51.62).
