MU women establish scoring record in win
Sunday, December 8, 2013
COLUMBIA — The hottest place in Mid-Missouri on Sunday may have been Mizzou Arena.
The Missouri Tigers set a women’s basketball single-game scoring record Sunday, putting seven players in double figures in a 126-55 victory against Bradley.
“To me honestly, it was just fun,” Missouri senior Bri Kulas said. “Just seeing all my teammates out there knocking down their shots, having fun, everybody was in it together.”
Kulas led the Missouri attack, matching her career-high with 27 points. She had all but one of those points in the first half.
“It was a night everyone was knocking down shots,” Missouri head coach Robin Pingeton said. “I thought Bri Kulas did a tremendous job out of the gates setting the tone and had an aggressive mindset.”
The Tigers hit 16 of their first 18 shots on their way to a 41-9 advantage less than 10 minutes into the contest. Missouri took a 65-23 advantage into intermission.
Morgan Eye of Missouri opened the second half with back-to-back 3-pointers to spark the Tigers in the final 20 minutes. They were two of 18 made 3-pointers for the Tigers, which matched a school record.
Morgan Stock came off the bench to add 21 points for the Tigers. The other double-digit scorers for the Tigers included Maddie Stock (15), Lianna Doty (14), Eye (13), Jordan Frericks (10) and Tania Jackson (10).
The previous Missouri women’s scoring record was 121 points, totaled in a 1978 game against Missouri-St. Louis.
Missouri (9-1) is off until Monday, Dec. 16, when the Tigers will host Belmont.
