Mizzou Ladies Roll Favored Tech

While the men's team flounders on and off the court, the Lady Tigers are quietly having a very nice campaign this year, highlighted so far with a victory over 10th-ranked Texas Tech.

Cindy Stein's Tigers upset the highly favored Texas Tech Red Raiders Wednesday night 82-71 primarily using tough defense, timely rebounds and solid free throw shooting.

Missouri, the Big 12's top free throw shooting team, sank 23-of-32 foul shots and snared 44 rebounds to Texas Tech's 31. The Tigers had 23 offensive rebounds on the night.

Four Missouri players finished in double figures in scoring including Evan Unrau (16), Kerensa Barr (19), Natalie Bright (16) and Melanie Fisher (12).

The lady Tigers are 10-3 on the season and appear to be picking up steam as they head into the teeth of their conference season.
