The women’s team played Missouri State at Great Southern Bank Arena in Springfield and were trailing in the early minutes of the game 9 to 4 before graduate guard Katlyn Gilbert converted a layup, sparking a 17-0 run that spanned the first quarter break.
The Tigers never looked back and lead the rest of the game, winning 68 to 51 over the Lady Bears.
Not a good night last night for the St. Louis Blues.
