Women’s hoops live thread: Mizzou vs. FGCU

It’s just about time for 5-seed Mizzou to take on the Eagles of FGCU!

✌️ hours away from tip. We’re ready

A post shared by Mizzou Women's Basketball (@mizzouwbb) on

Well, as most of you are, I’m still a little bummed from last night, but we’re shoving that aside and looking forward to the women’s game this afternoon. The No. 5 seed is the highest the program has had, and the Tigers are looking to get to the Sweet 16, and maybe more.

This is the first match-up between the two teams. If the Tigers prevail, they’ll face the winner of #4 Stanford (host team) vs. #13 Gonzaga.

Know your opponent: FGCU loves to shoot the three — really put some emphasis on “loves.” They lead the nation in three point attempts at 33.1 per game, and six players have attempted at least 100 threes, shooting over 34%. They’re short, though, with no one at or over 6’0. They are the champions of the Atlantic Sun Conference.

Opponent: The Florida Gulf Coast Eagles (30-4)

Time: 2:30 p.m. CT (approx)

Where: Maples Pavilion, Stanford, CA.

Where To Watch: ESPN2

Radio: Tiger Radio Network // Sirius/XM -119/199
