AUSTIN, Texas - The University of Missouri women's basketball team suffered a 60-41 loss at the hands of No. 18/22 Texas on Wednesday night at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. The Tigers drop to 11-17 overall and 1-14 in the Big 12 Conference, while the Longhorns improve to 20-9 and 9-6.
With the Longhorns holding an early 10-4 advantage, junior RaeShara Brown nabbed a steal and drove the length of the court to hit a layup to pull the Tigers within four, 10-6, with 13:24 remaining in the opening frame.
Texas then reeled off a 12-4 run, capped by a layup from Erika Arriaran, over the next six minutes as the home squad built a 22-10 lead with 7:42 left.
After senior Toy Richbow knocked in two free throws for a 27-16 game with 4:09 on the clock, Texas responded with a layup a minute later and a free throw from Earnesia Williams with 0.7 seconds left for a 30-16 Longhorn halftime advantage.
The Tigers came strong out of the locker room, using a 12-4 run over the first five minutes. Jones had six points during the spurt, which concluded when Richbow drove the lane for a layup to get Mizzou within six, 34-28, at the 15:00 mark.
