After a nerve-racking OT win the Mizzou women face Mississippi State

Missour’s first trip to the semi-finals puts them up against the top seeded and fifth ranked Mississippi State Bulldogs. If you recall, back on Valentines Day Mizzou spoiled the the Bulldogs undefeated record in conference play behind 24 points from Sophie Cunningham and 16 points from Amber Smith, as they won perhaps the biggest road victory in program history.

The winner will get a crack at the SEC Tournament Championship against the winner of either Texas A&M or Arkansas — who upset the South Carolina Gamecocks.

The good news is you can watch on ESPN U at 4:00 pm

Hopefully you can tune in after watching the men beat Ole Miss!

It’s senior day so Mizzou will be honoring Kevin Puryear, Jordan Geist, Cullen VanLeer, and Adam Wolf. It’s the last regular season game of the year and the Tigers have a chance to get back to .500. With a win, Mizzou can have a shot to move into the 11th spot in the standings, which ultimately doesn’t mean much as they’ll still playing on the opening night and a rematch against Georgia or a rematch against Vanderbilt probably won’t matter either way. Mizzou will need to beat Ole Miss and win their first game to land on .500 to finish the season.

Mizzou is 2-1 this season in games where they dropped the first contest. They won the revenge matchup versus Arkansas and South Carolina while dropping their second game to Tennessee. Consequently both the Razorbacks and Gamecocks lost to the Tigers on their home court, so that means something right?
