Missouri women’s basketball senior Morgan Eye has made her mark in the Mizzou record books when it comes to three-point shots. Now the Montrose, Mo. native did so on the national level.
She tied the WNIT record nine three-pointers in game on Sunday, as Eye and Mizzou beat Kansas State 67-48 in the second round. The Tigers, as a team, hit 16 three-pointers which is one off the WNIT team record.
The Tigers led by as many as ten in the first half, but the Wildcats tied the game at intermission and had a three-point lead in the second half, before Missouri went on a 19-0 run. K-State shot just 19% in the second half.
The Tigers will advance to the third round and will play the winner of Monday’s Michigan, Toledo game.
