Missouri's Bowers likely to miss another game

Missouri's Bowers likely to miss another game

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) Laurence Bowers will likely miss his fourth consecutive game for No. 22 Missouri when the Tigers play at home Tuesday against South Carolina.

Bowers has been rehabbing a sprained right knee he injured Jan. 5 against Alabama. Missouri (13-4, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) has lost two of three since then, including 15- and 31-point losses on the road.

The 6-foot-8, 227-pound senior leads the Tigers in scoring with 16.8 points per game and ranks second with 6.9 rebounds.

Keion Bell is also unlikely to play Tuesday after spraining an ankle in the team's 83-52 loss Saturday at then-No. 10 Florida. Earnest Ross will be a game-time decision after injuring his back last Wednesday against Georgia.

Coach Frank Haith made the announcements Monday at the team's weekly news conference.

Juan Soto crushes a homer in the first at-bat of his first-ever start

Juan Soto, the highly-regarded 19-year-old Nationals' prospect, got his first major league start of his career tonight. 

How did it go, you ask? Surely it would take Soto - who was in Single-A less than two weeks ago - some time to adjust? 

What were you doing at 19??
