For the second straight year, the Missouri women defeat South Carolina. This time the Gamecocks came in as defending national champions though! Sophie Cunningham paved the way for all scorers with 27 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists!
The Tigers move to 14-2 (2-1 SEC) on the year and take on Vanderbilt in Nashville on January 11. Could the Missouri women be the new team to beat in the SEC? It sure looks like they have that potential. The recent loss to LSU in unexplainable but this Tiger squad looks deep and well coached. Of course, there is still a strong Mississippi State team that the Tigers will face later in the season in Columbia. That game will likely be packed to the rafters with screaming Mizzou fans. While an SEC Championship is a possibility with wins like this, the effect on NCAA seeding is more important. With a number 2 or 3 seed in the Big Dance the Tigers could be poised to make a deep run.
