Tailgates aren’t just for Tiger football. Last Saturday before the Georgia game, I stopped by MizzouRec for a day of activities supporting our Mizzou Wheelchair Basketball team.
Head Coach Ron Lykins — the winningest coach in international wheelchair basketball history — and many of his players greeted fans and showed their skills on the court. Student volunteers from our Parks, Recreation and Sport program also helped out.
Curator Robin Wenneker and I joined nearly 400 other attendees who came to learn about the game and even try the sport.
This year’s Mizzou Wheelchair Basketball schedule will be announced soon. I hope Tiger fans fill historic Brewer Fieldhouse to cheer on another great Mizzou team.
