The Mizzou women’s basketball team has 21 wins and finished 8-8 in conference play. They should get a spot in the NCAA Tournament, but the Tigers are limping in after their lackluster 47-45 loss to Auburn in the opening game of the second round of the SEC Tournament in Jacksonville, FL. The Tigers shot just 35% and turned the ball over 20 times.
The Tigers trailed by one at the end of the third quarter despite going scoreless for 7:19. The Tigers also missed six of their last seven shots including a layup from Cierra Porter with less than two seconds left that would have sent the game into overtime. Porter finished 0-for-6 for the game. She and SEC Freshman of the Year, Sophie Cunningham, combined to shoot 1-of-11 for the game.
Senior Morgan Stock led the Tigers with 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting including 5-of-10 from three-point range.
