NORMAN, Okla. - Senior RaeShara Brown became the University of Missouri's all-time steals leader but the Mizzou women's basketball team suffered 69-47 loss to the No. 14/12 Oklahoma Sooners Saturday afternoon in Norman, Okla. The loss dropped the Tigers to 11-13 overall and 3-7 in Big 12 Conference play, while the Sooners improved to 18-6 and 8-3.
Brown, who tied former Tiger great Joni Davis's steal's record of 248 on Feb. 5, stole the ball from Danielle Robinson with 18:49 left in the second half to set the school mark.
Senior Shakara Jones paced Mizzou with 12 points.
The score remained close in the opening minutes, with the score knotted at 6-6 with 15:41 left in the frame. A three from Jones gave the Tigers a 9-7 advantage a minute later but Oklahoma responded with 16-2 run to take a 23-11 lead with 7:20 on the clock.
Oklahoma kept Missouri at bay until Jones hit back-to-back baskets to bring the Tigers within single-digits, 27-18, at the 2:05 mark of the first. The Sooners outscored Mizzou 4-2 in rest of the half to enter the break with a 31-20 advantage.
Missouri's offense came alive in the second half, as the team outscored the Sooners 11-5 in the first four minutes. The run brought the Tigers within seven, 31-26, with 16:14 remaining the game. Brown grabbed her record breaking steal during the stretch, while Mizzou used five points from sophomore Trenee Thornton.
The Sooners came back to outscore the Tigers 25-7 to retake control and increase their lead to 61-38 with 5:19 left in the contest.
Mizzou returns to Mizzou Arena on Wednesday, Feb. 16 to face the Oklahoma State Cowgirls at 7 p.m. The contest is the WBCA Pink Zone® game, a global, unified effort for the Women's Basketball Coaches Association's nation of coaches to assist in raising breast cancer awareness on the court, across campuses, in communities and beyond.
