On Sunday, March 16, Missouri returns to the court to host Arkansas at Noon and Drake at 6 p.m. Admission to all three matches is free.
LAST WEEKEND'S RECAP
The Tigers went 1-2 last weekend in their first home matches in nearly two months. On Friday, Missouri fell to No. 7 Vanderbilt, 7-0, despite two matches that went to third sets.
Mizzou then suffered a tough 4-2 loss to No. 22 Kentucky on Sunday morning. Senior Rachel Stuhlmann and sophomore Kelli Hine each picked up singles wins, while freshman Cassidy Spearman was leading her match but the Wildcats' win suspended play.
Sunday evening, the Tigers dominated Bradley 7-0, as the team won all three doubles matches and swept singles.

In SEC action, LSU has suffered losses to Kentucky (4-1), Vanderbilt (7-0), Alabama (4-0) and Auburn (4-3). Top singles player Joana Vale Costa, ranked No. 69 nationally, paces the team with an 8-3 dual match record, while Abby Owens boasts a 2-1 mark in SEC action.
The Razorbacks are 5-8 on the year with a 0-4 record in SEC competition. The squad earned two wins over Wichita State earlier in the year (4-2 and 4-3), and has wins over Kansas State, North Texas and SIU. Arkansas' four SEC losses have come at the hands of Vanderbilt (6-1), Kentucky (4-0), Auburn (4-3) and Alabama (4-0).
