COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Both the Missouri men's and women's basketball programs tipped off their 2013-14 seasons as the Tigers hosted the Black and Gold Game on Tuesday (Oct. 15) at Mizzou Arena.

After both teams held an autograph signing for fans, the Women's Basketball team took the court. Bri Kulas got things going in style, tossing in seven of her game-high 12 points in the first six minutes to give Mizzou Black an early 15-7 lead. The senior forward added six rebounds and three steals, but her performance wasn't enough as the Gold Team squeaked out a close 29-26 victory.

Sophomore Lianna Doty led a balanced attack for Mizzou Gold. The St. Louis, Mo., native tallied seven points and five rebounds and helped her squad go on a 9-1 run to knot the score at 16-16 at the halftime break.

The second half was a back-and-forth affair as the two teams traded threes down the stretch. A Doty assist to freshman Jordan Frericks gave Mizzou Gold the lead for good with under a minute left. Frericks added eight points and 10 rebounds in her first exhibition appearance for the Tigers.

Mizzou Men's Basketball will launch its exhibition season at the Hearnes Center on Oct. 25 as the team welcomes Oklahoma City at 7 p.m. The game will celebrate the 1993-94 team's 20-year reunion. Four days later, women's basketball opens up exhibition play in a matchup with Southwest Baptist at 7 p.m. Oct. 29.
