Despite going 13-6-3 and winning the Big 12 regular season title with a 7-1-2 record, Missouri's women's soccer team was left out of the NCAA Tournament this year.
According to MizzouSoccer's twitter update, this is the first time the Big 12 regular season champion was left out of the NCAA Tournament.
The women's soccer NCAA Tournament is comprised of 64 teams with 30 at-large bids. Apparently, the selection committee didn't think too highly of Missouri despite the team averaging 2.55 goals per game, 11th-best in the nation.
Or, maybe the selection committee just forgot about Missouri. Whatever the explanation is, it's hard to understand why the selection committee passed on picking the regular season champion of a major athletic conference.
