Mizzou will return 82-percent of its SEC and school record-breaking three-point shooting from last season. The Tigers made 263 treys last year and bring back 215 of those makes.

Sophomore guard Lianna Doty finished fourth on the all-time single-season assists record to conclude the 2012-13 season. Her 151 assists last season left her 82 shy of Dee-Dee Polk's all-time record that was set during the 1983-84 season.
The Tigers welcome five newcomers to this season's squad; Redshirt senior Tania Jackson (Kansas), redshirt freshman Davionna Holmes (Louisville), freshman Kayla McDowell (Cincinnati, Ohio), freshman Jordan Frericks (Quincy, Ill.), and freshman Sierra Michaelis (Mercer, Mo.).
