MIZZOU OPENS SEASON AT SAINT LOUIS
Mizzou will open the season against Saint Louis for the second consecutive season. The Tigers take on the Billikens at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8 in St. Louis, Mo. Mizzou has the 18-0 advantage over Saint Louis in series history, and the Tigers earned a 67-51 victory over the Billikens to kick off the season last year in Mizzou Arena.
SCOUTING SAINT LOUIS
The Billikens are coming off of a 59-52 exhibition loss to UMSL, but will present a strong challenge for the Tigers. The Billikens return one starter in Desirae Ball, who averaged nine points per game last season and started in every game for Saint Louis. The team welcomes seven newcomers to the squad including Illijana Todorovic, a transfer from SUNY Canton who averaged 11.1 points and 6.5 rebounds per game last season.
Mizzou opens up at home on Sunday, Nov. 10 against Southern Illinois-Edwardsville. Every Sunday Mizzou will host Family Funday at the Zou, featuring the bounce house, face painters and other fun activities on the Mizzou Arena concourse. This week, fans can come make their own Mizzou posters to help cheer on the Tigers. Children 12 and under will receive free admission, and fans who bring their Men's Basketball ticket stub from Friday's game against Southeastern Louisiana will receive free admission as well.
The Associated Press released its preseason poll Friday, Nov. 1. Connecticut was the unanimous No. 1 on the list, but the Missouri Tigers were listed as receiving votes in the poll. The Southeastern Conference tallied six teams in the preseason Top 25, and two teams receiving votes including Missouri and Vanderbilt. Upcoming opponent Tennessee-Martin also received one vote in the poll.
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. Morgan Eye led the team and the league with 112 threes last season and finished the year as the NCAA National Statistical leader averaging 3.5 made per game.
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.).
Mizzou was chosen to finish ninth in the Southeastern Conference this season in both the media and coaches polls. Tennessee was slated to win the 2014 SEC Title in both polls as well.
