MU Women Lose Close One
Alyssa Hollins took the potential game winning shot with three seconds left but watched it fall short. Hollins had 19 points in the game, but could not make the final bucket to put the Tigers over the top.
Mizzou was led by EeTisha Riddle's game high 26 points and eleven rebounds. It was her ninth double-double of the year and fifth in Big 12 play. Tiffany Brooks added 15 points of her own.
