ARKANSAS VS. MISSOURI PREVIEW


All's well that ends well, still the fine's the crown;

Whate'er the course, the end is the renown.


It's the final home series for Arkansas softball this weekend, and this team would have made Helena from William Shakespeare's All's Well That Ends Well proud. Despite dropping an important series to Alabama just a few weeks ago, the Razorbacks look primed to win their first SEC crown in school history.


The end is the renown, indeed.


With two conference series remaining, our attention turns to Missouri. How do the Razorbacks match up against the Tigers? Let's dive in, folks...


▶️ The Show-Me Sluggers: The Tigers may be unranked, but their hitting has been above par so far this season. Their .337 batting average is second in the SEC. Jenna Laird is leading the Tigers with an astounding .431 batting average, good for third-best among all SEC softball players.


▶️ Extra Extra: One area Missouri is second-to-none is multi-base hits. They're ranked first in the SEC in doubles and triples combined (75). Arkansas' above-average fielding percentage (.973) will be put to the test.


▶️ Wild Pitch: Here's where the Razorbacks can (and should) capitalize. Missouri pitchers have the third-worst ERA in the SEC (3.20) and are giving up the most home runs in the conference (41).


The Razorback softball team kicks off a three-game SEC home stand against Missouri on Saturday at 1:00pm CT. Game 1 won't be televised, but Games 2 and 3 will be shown on the SEC Network.
