Things didn’t go as planned for the Tigers one week after an historic upset.Missouri struggled from the field and never found its footing as they dropped a 61-56 decision to the Mississippi State Bulldogs Sunday afternoon.
The game was close throughout, with neither team leading by more than 6 at any point in the game, but the Tigers could never close the gap, missing several layups. Morgan Eye did break the single season record for three pointers in the game when she hit her 91st three of the season.
