Workers sign a steel beam marking the end of a major phase in construction at Memorial Stadium on Friday. The new seating and concession facilities should be finished in time for the first home game.

Hundreds of workers signed the last steel beam to be laid in the expansion work at Memorial Stadium in a topping out ceremony on Friday. The ceremony is a construction industry tradition, marking ta milestone in the construction process. Tim Hickman, MU’s senior associate athletic director for operations, said it’s now a sprint to the finish with several hundred workers on site to finish the renovation.

Construction started last spring on new east side seating at Memorial Stadium, part of a $200 million master plan for upgrades and new construction to Missouri’s sports facilities. With just four months before Missouri’s football season kicks off against South Dakota State, the new stands are finally taking shape. KBIA’s Philip Joens takes us around the new addition.

This is the unedited video from the news conference. Length: 16:59


Mike Alden, director of athletics for the University of Missouri, talks with media on Friday, April 10, 2014, about the dismissal of wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham from the Mizzou football team. Green-Beckham, a junior, has been involved in several incidents which Alden and coach Gary Pinkel said were not the behavior the university wants from its student athletes.

“Actions we’ve seen such as what we have seen over the past couple months are unacceptable,” Alden said. “That is not the way we are going to represent the University of Missouri, and the thing that is so unfortunate is the significant majority of our kids are doing amazing things.”

With 1,540 people packed into University Field and many more watching the nationally-televised game, Chelsea Thomas pitched a no-hitter to lead No. 11 Missouri to a 2-0 victory in game one against No. 4 Tennessee.

“It’s pretty crazy.  It was a really fun night.  I’ll remember this night for a while,” Thomas said.

The game was her first solo no-hitter of the season and the eleventh of her career. The caliber of competition makes the performance even more special according to coach Ehren Earleywine.

“It’s as good as I can remember because Tennessee lights it up offensively,” he said.  “It was in front of a nice crowd, and it was an important game.  I thought it was extraordinary.”

Mizzou baseball team tries to dig out of all that snow

By Zach Garcia

Members of the University of Missouri baseball team spent part of this week trying to clear snow from Simmons Field in hopes of getting in the three-game series with Northwestern. But after many hours on the field and barely making a bent in the amount of snow, the series was canceled, with no plans to reschedule the games.

Missouri’s home field is covered under more than foot of snow, which fell during the two large winter storms that hit the Columbia area in the past week. The team joined members of the Mizzou athletics facilities operations department in helping to begin clearing snow from the field on Wednesday, but about two hours of work only amounted to clearing a small portion of center field.

Missouri head coach Tim Jamieson said Wednesday that the field may be playable by the beginning of next week, keeping hope alive for scheduled games against Eastern Michigan on March 5 and 6.

Missouri has opened the season with an 0-6 record following two rough weekends on the road against Southern Mississippi and Memphis.

Basketball Career Isn’t Over for Flores

By Lauren Delany

Many college basketball players aspire to have the opportunity to take their game to the next level. For Missouri senior forward Christine Flores, these hoop dreams became a reality.

On Monday, April 16, Flores was drafted by the Phoenix Mercury in the WNBA.

“Well I was really nervous, I actually didn’t know how much of a possibility it was for me to be drafted, so for me to see my name on the TV and my agent be able to call me and just hear the words come out of his mouth, saying ‘You’ve been drafted’, it was a dream come true, and I had no words for it at all”, Flores said about her draft experience.
