Nov. 30, 2013
Coral Gables, Fla. - Senior Bri Kulas and Junior Morgan Eye earned All-Tournament honors at this weekend's University of Miami Thanksgiving Tournament after a combined 40-point performance. The Tigers finished second in the tournament with a win over Hartford and a loss to Miami. Eye's 27-point effort was not enough to hold off the Miami Hurricanes on Saturday (Nov. 30) as the Tigers dropped to the `Canes 74-68. The loss is Mizzou's first of the season, dropping the team to 7-1 overall.
Kulas earned her sixth-career double-double with 13 points and 14 rebounds on the night. She was 6-for-6 from the charity stripe. Overall, Missouri shot 92-percent from the free throw line, capitalizing on Miami fouls.
Mizzou started off the first half 7 taking an 8-0 lead over Miami, and Mizzou held on to the lead for most of the half thanks to a 5-for-7 three-point shooting effort from junior Morgan Eye. The Hurricanes picked up momentum and were able to tie things up at 22 with just over six minutes left in the half. The two teams went back-and-forth until the final seconds of play when sophomore Michelle Hudyn made a jumper to give Mizzou a three point lead heading into the locker room at halftime. Using a defensive mindset, the Tigers held the `Canes to just 28.6-percent shooting in the first half.
The two teams came out of the locker room ready to fight, and traded the lead for much of the second half. Junior Bree Fowler put up all of her career-high 10 points in the second half, going 2-for-2 from distance in the half.
Missouri returns to Columbia, Mo. for two more games next week. The Tigers will host Oral Roberts on Thursday, Dec. 4 at 7 p.m. and Bradley on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 4 p.m.
