Michaelis had a career night against Missouri State.
Dec. 19, 2013
Springfield, Mo.- It was a career night for freshman Sierra Michaelis as she led the Tigers with 14 points to set a new career-high mark. Her seven rebounds on the night also mark a career high for the Mercer, Mo., native. Despite her marks, the Tigers couldn't hold off the Lady Bears, dropping to their in-state rival, 67-53. The Tigers fall to 10-2 on the season.
Missouri's 10-1 record to start the year matches the Tigers' 2011-12 season start, good for the best in program history since the 2006-07 season.
Missouri trailed the Lady Bears through the first half, heading into the locker room with a 15-point deficit. Freshman Sierra Michaelis led the Tigers with six points and four rebounds in the first half. The Tigers knocked down 18 points in the paint in the half, holding the Lady Bears to just 12.
Coming into the second half, senior Bri Kulas knocked down a three-pointer to get things started. The Tigers were able to pull within six points late in the half, but the Lady Bears continued to put the pressure on. The Tigers shot 50-percent from beyond the arc in the second half knocking down 5-of-10 shots from distance.
