Mizzou Women notch First Road Win

Posted by bfreeman on January 20, 2013

It took overtime, but the Missouri Women got their first ever SEC road victory Sunday afternoon.

The back and forth game came down to the final minutes with the Tigers emerging victorious 73-72 in overtime.  The two teams were tied at the end of the first half and the end of regulation, so it came as little surprise the game was decided by free throws by Sydney Crafton.

Crafton made the first, but missed the second of her two game deciding free throws, but the Rebels halfcourt heave fell short as the Tigers secured the victory.

Despite fouling out late in the game, Bri Kulas led the team with 23 points.  She was one of three Tigers in double figures.  Crafton added 13 while Liz Smith poured in 12.  Kulas completed her double-double with 10 rebounds and Crafton led the team with 5 assists.

With the win, the Tigers improve to 13-6 on the season and 2-3 in the SEC.  They head home to host the Arkansas Razorbacks Thursday at 7pm.  Pregame begins at 6:45 on your home for Mizzou women’s basketball, ESPN 100.5 and Total Sports Station 103.1 KTGR.
