TIGERS HOST EVANSVILLE THURSDAY
Missouri hosts Evansville on Thursday, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. The Tigers lead the series with Evansville, 6-0, and topped the Purple Aces 71-54 in the 2011-12 season. Mizzou will honor its Hometown Heroes on Thursday, as all Military, Veterans, Emergency Personnel, Police and Firefighters will receive free admission to the game.
PEEPING THE PURPLE ACES
The Purple Aces are 1-1 on the season after their loss to Murray State on Monday (Nov. 11). Evansville started off its season strong with an impressive win over Eastern Illinois University in which the Purple Aces had five players score double figures, while forcing 30 turnovers in the contest. Evansville then traveled to Murray State on Monday where they fell to the Racers 62-50. Junior Mallory Ladd had a double-double where she scored 13 points and grabbed 19 rebounds. The Purple Aces were able to outrebound the Racers in the game 66 to 54, but committed 17 turnovers to Murray State's 10. Freshman Sara Dickey also contributed nine points and 13 rebounds.
The Tigers will welcome The Southeast Missouri Redhawks on Thursday, November 21. The Tigers own a 14-1 record against the Redhawks with the most recent meeting coming on December 29, 2008 when the Tigers earned a 60-31 win over SEMO.
The Tigers are showing some depth this season, and that was put on display against SIUE as 31 of Mizzou's 59 points came from off the bench. So far this season, the Tiger bench is accounting for just under 60-percent of the team's scoring.
With Sunday's home-opening win, the Tigers improve to 32-8 all-time in home-opening games. The Tiger's victory over SLU improved the program to 31-8 in all-time season openers.
The Tigers' victory over SIUE also marks women's basketball's 90th victory in Mizzou Arena.
Head Coach Robin Pingeton is just five wins away from her 50th victory at MU. She holds a 45-51 record during her time with the Tigers.
The Tigers are playing unselfish basketball this season, as the team has assisted on 31-of-46 field goals. Sophomore point guard Lianna Doty leads the team with 15 assists on the season and she boasts a 2:1 assist-turnover ratio.
