Mizzou Uses 22-0 Run to Grab 62-42 Win
The University of Missouri women's basketball team scored the game's first 22 points to roll to a 63-42 victory over Chicago State and extend its winning streak to eight games on Tuesday evening at Mizzou Arena. The Tigers conclude non-conference play with a 9-4 mark while the Cougars fall to 8-8 on the year.

Missouri continues its non-conference slate at Mizzou Arena with the Chicago State Cougars. The Tigers will honor our military forces and veterans in the designated Military Day game. The Tigers are 4-0 against the Cougars in program history, and the two teams have not met since the 2008-09 season. Mizzou welcomed Chicago State to Mizzou Arena and the Tigers earned a 62-42 victory.

Mizzou will host Western Illinois on Nov. 15 in one last home competition before hitting the road for the Cancun Challenge on Nov. 22. The Tigers will play three games in Cancun, taking on Wichita State, Green Bay and Minnesota.

The Cougars begin this season returning three starters and seven letter winners from last year, including Great West Conference All-Newcomer honoree and St. Louis native, Paris Williams. After finishing the 2011-2012 season 6-24 and losing their leading scorer, Janay Dockery, the Cougars have strengthened their roster by adding four talented freshman all averaging above 10 points per game in high school. The Cougars have also added junior transfer, Brittany Campbell, from Old Dominion University who averaged 14 points and 10 rebounds per game in high school. The Cougars will look to their sophomore class to build on their success from last year and continue their improvement over the course of this season.

Junior transfer Bri Kulas made a huge impact in the Tigers' season opener against Saint Louis. Kulas put up a team-leading 18 points on the game, making 7-of13 field goal attempts. Freshman Maddie Stock also had a strong showing, attempting 11 three-pointers and recording 11 points in just 13 minutes on the court. Lianna Doty came off the Tiger bench and tallied 24 minutes of playing time. Her confident attitude helped her to a final tally of seven points and eight assists. Darian Saunders' defensive stills also helped the Tigers to their first victory. Saunders tallied three blocks on the game and led the team with eight rebounds.
