Columbia, Mo. - The Missouri softball team released its 2010 schedule and will take on 36 teams representing 15 different conferences beginning Saturday, Feb. 13. Coming off of a season in which the Tigers advanced to the Women's College World Series (WCWS) for just the fourth time in program history and first time in 15 years, Missouri will face off against 14 of the 64 teams selected to the 2009 64-team NCAA post-season bracket, including three of the eight squads represented at the WCWS.
Following the annual Black and Gold Scrimmage set for Saturday, Feb. 6, at 2 p.m. (CT) on University Field, the Tigers will travel to Tuscaloosa, Ala., for a three-game series against six-time WCWS participant, Alabama on Feb. 13. Missouri last met with Alabama in Tuscaloosa at the 2008 best-of-three NCAA Super Regional Tournament with the Tide managing back-to-back wins over the Tigers.
Missouri will make its way to Tucson, Ariz., one week later and battle with Arizona in a three-game series beginning on Saturday, Feb. 20. The Tiger's first three opponents of the 2010 campaign, Alabama, Arizona and Leadoff Classic opponent Michigan (Feb. 26), all participated in the 2009 WCWS in Oklahoma City, Okla. The Leadoff Classic, an annual tournament in which Missouri last participated in 2006, is slated to run Feb. 26-28, in Columbus, Ga.
The Tigers are hosting three tournaments this season beginning with the Missouri Breast Cancer Awareness Tournament featuring in-state opponents St. Louis, SEMO, Missouri State and UMKC. This marks the first year that the annual event will be played on the University of Missouri campus. Missouri opens play Friday, March 5, against St. Louis, kicking off a 16 game homestand.
Beginning March 12, the Tigers host New Mexico, Bradley, San Diego State, Illinois and Illinois State in the three-day Tiger Invitational followed by the three-day Mizzou Classic, March 19-21, in which Missouri will play single games against Northern Colorado, Ball State, Northwestern and Eastern Michigan.
Big 12 Conference action will pick up Saturday, March 27, in Norman, Okla., as the Tigers square off with Oklahoma. Missouri will host league foes Oklahoma State, Kansas, Texas Tech and Baylor in games on University Field. In all, Tiger fans will have 25 opportunities to see their Missouri softball team in action at home.
The 14th annual Big 12 Championships return to Oklahoma City, Okla., beginning Friday, May 14. Last season, Missouri collected its second Big 12 Softball crown after winning the single-elimination, three day tournament played at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium.
NCAA postseason play is set to begin Friday, May 21, with the first day of the 2010 WCWS set for Friday, June 3, in Oklahoma City, Okla.
