TIGERS EARN EXHIBITION WIN OVER LINCOLN
Mizzou opened the exhibition season with a 75-50 win over Lincoln University on Oct. 30, giving head coach Robin Pingeton a 3-0 record in season opening exhibition games at Mizzou. Senior Sydney Crafton led the Tigers with what would be a career-high, 28 points. She started the game by making her first 10 field goals, and finished 11-for-12 on the night. Also making a good impression on her first outing was freshman Maddie Stock, who put up double figures for the Tigers. Freshman Lianna Doty saw 22 minutes of playing time and racked up six assists in her first appearance at Mizzou Arena as well.
LOOKING AT SAINT LOUIS
Mizzou will open the regular season on Friday, when the Saint Louis Billikens come to Mizzou Arena. The Tigers are 17-0 against SLU in program history, with the most recent match up being last season. The Tigers traveled to Chaifetz Arena on Nov. 16 and brought home a 68-56 victory over the Billikens. Morgan Eye stood out for the Tigers in the win, shooting a perfect 4-for-4 from behind the arc to tally a then-career high 16 points. The Billikens return four starters and nine letterwinners after finishing the 2011-12 season 11-20 overall. Saint Louis will look to senior guard Courtney Webb and sophomore guard Desirae Ball to provide leadership on the court as they are the team's top returning scorers. Webb averaged 11.4 points per game last season while Ball averaged 9.2. The team welcomes one newcomer in freshman Denisha Womack, who led her high school team in scoring with 17 points per game and was named to the All-Conference first team after her senior season.
