Mizzou was led by junior Lindsey Cunningham who tied her career-high with 16 points. Senior Morgan Stock finished with 12 points. Those two shot a combined 7 of 10 from three-point range.
Our Tigers led by 17 at the half, but LSU came out and shutout Mizzou until under three minutes to go in the quarter, using a 15-0 run to make it a two-point game at 33-31. Mizzou never surrendered the lead, despite making just four field goals in the second half.
