COLUMBIA, Mo. - In her sophomore season, Morgan Eye netted a total of 112 three-point field goals through 32 games. Eye finished the 2012-13 season as the NCAA Division I National Statistical Champion as she averaged 3.5 three-point field goals per game.

Her 112 three-pointers this past season stand as Mizzou and Southeastern Conference season records. The previous Mizzou best was set at 109 threes made by Alyssa Hollins in the 2007-08 season. The Southeastern Conference record was previously set at 108 by Mississippi State's Alexis Rack in 2010.

Not only did Eye set season records this season, but she set a new single-game record when she knocked down 11 three-pointers in Mizzou's first home SEC competition against Auburn. Eye's 11 threes broke the previous record of eight three-pointers in a game, which she also set against UT Martin. Before this season, Mizzou's single-game best was set at seven, reached by Julie Helm, Alyssa Hollins and Amanda Hanneman.

Eye was named Co-Sixth Woman of the Year by the Southeastern Conference this season and also earned the team's Free Throw Award at Mizzou's post season banquet. She shot a team-leading 79-percent from the charity stripe this season.

As a team, the Tigers had a record-breaking season as well, tallying 17 wins for the first time since the 2006-07 season. Not only that, but Mizzou advanced to the Post-Season WNIT, marking the first time that a Mizzou team has reached postseason play since the 2006-07 season as well. The Tigers landed three Tigers on All-SEC teams this season, and senior Liz Smith earned a spot on the SEC Community Service team.
