Coral Gables, Fla. - The Mizzou Tigers earned their seventh win of the season (7-0 overall) on Friday, topping the Hartford Hawks, 68-45 in the first game of the University of Miami Thanksgiving Tournament. Senior Bri Kulas led the Tigers with 24 points on the night, followed by freshman Jordan Frericks who recorded a career-high 13 points on the night.
The Tigers shot 40-percent from the field on the night and held the Hawks to just 19-percent from beyond the arc.
The Tigers started off the first half trading buckets with the Hawks, but with 8:44 left in the half Mizzou went on a 13-0 run and never looked back. The Tigers held the Hawks to just 22 first-half points, none from the charity stripe. The Tigers also outscored the Hawks 18-2 in the paint through the first half. Kulas' leadership skills were evident in the half as she led the team with 17 points before the break.
Hartford picked up steam coming out of the locker room reducing the Tigers lead to just six points, but Frericks was sent to the free throw line to help turn the Tigers around. Frericks finished the game with a career high 13 points overall. Her eight rebounds on the night contributed to Missouri's domination on the glass as well. The Tigers outrebounded the Hawks, 49-30.
Missouri went on a 15-0 run from 10:28 to 1:29 in the second half, holding off the Hawks for about 10 minutes. The Hawks scored with 10:56 on the clock and did not record any points until just before the final minute of the game.
The Tigers will face Miami in the tournament championship game tomorrow, Nov. 30, at 2 p.m. CT. Live scoring for the tournament can be found at Miami.statbroadcast.com.
