Columbia, Mo. - Senor Bri Kulas notched a career-high 30 points behind a 5-for-10 effort from beyond the arc in Missouri's 87-68 loss to No. 14 LSU on Thursday. Kulas shot a scorching 50 percent from the field and sunk five of the team's 11 total three-pointers. Mizzou falls to 13-5 overall and 2-3 in SEC play. Kulas is just the seventh SEC player to record 30 or more points in a game this season.
Missouri got off to a hot start, opening up an early 15-7 lead. Morgan Stock hit three quick three-pointers, scoring nine of her 11 points in the first five minutes of the game. LSU battled back and grabbed a 23-21 advantage with 8:22 to play in the first half, but Morgan Eye answered with another trey.
The rest of the half was a back and forth affair. After LSU put together a 6-0 run, Kulas knocked down back-to-back three-pointers to tie the game again. Kulas had 16 points going in to halftime, but Mizzou trailed 42-40.
At the 16:16 mark in the second half, sophomore point guard Lianna Doty racked up her sixth assist of the game on a dish to Kulas for a layup. Doty now has 254 career assists, which puts her at No. 10 all-time in Missouri history.
LSU led the rest of the way, but Robin Pingeton's squad continued to fight, keeping the deficit in single digits 12 minutes into the second half. Freshman forward Jordan Frericks ripped down her 10th rebound late in the game. The board polished off her fifth double-double of the season as she finished with 11 points and 11 rebounds.
Mizzou will get a week off before hosting Texas A&M at Mizzou Arena on Jan. 23. The game tips off at 7 p.m. Keep checking in to MUTigers.com for more information on Mizzou Women's Basketball. Fans can also follow the team on Twitter (@MizzouWBB) and Facebook (facebook.com/MizzouWBB).
