Nov. 23, 2013
Martin, Tenn. - Morgan Eye hit eight three-pointers in the second half to spark a 77-74 comeback win for the Tigers at Tennessee-Martin on Saturday night (Nov. 23). Freshman Jordan Frericks clinched the win for the Tigers with just 1.5 seconds on the clock as the Tigers and the Skyhawks traded baskets within the last few seconds of play. Bri Kulas hit two last-second free throws to secure the victory and Missouri improves to 5-0 on the season.
Eye hit nine threes in the game and tallied 27 points overall to give the Tigers their fifth win of the season. Frericks recorded her second double-double of the season with 10 points and 17 rebounds as well. Kulas also finished in double-figures for her fourth straight game with a total of 16 points on the night.
Eye sparked a second half run for the Tigers as she hit three three-pointers in a row to help build momentum. Lianna Doty added another three for the Tigers to bring Mizzou within seven points. Tennessee-Martin was tough to stop, however. The Tigers took their first lead of the game with five minutes on the clock.
Missouri went into the locker room trailing UT Martin 37-26, after a fast-paced first half of play. The Skyhawk's Heather Butler recorded 21 points in the first half to give UT Martin the boost it needed to maintain the lead. Freshman Jordan Frericks grabbed 10 rebounds for the Tigers in the first half, and senior Bri Kulas lead the scoring with seven points. The Tigers played strong team basketball, assisting on seven of their 10 first-half field goals.
Mizzou returns to Columbia to host UMKC on Tuesday, Nov. 26. The game is set for 7 p.m. and the Tigers will welcome Special Olympics athletes who will scrimmage at halftime.
