Pingeton’s Squad Sets Sights on Winning Final Exhibition

If you’re in town, I highly suggest heading over to Mizzou Arena to check out the women’s team, as they face Division 2 team, Southwest Baptist, out of Bolivar, MO, this evening at 7pm. The Bears finished 5-14 in a conference-only season last year, and are picked to finished third in the Great Lakes Valley Conference this season, behind Drury and Rockhurst.

Did I mention it’s FREE admission? Because IT IS. I’ll be there!

Things to Watch:

  • Does LaDazhia Williams start? She is coming back from injury and was wearing quite the hefty knee brace last game. She came off the bench and played 12 min for the Tigers, scoring 12 points on 5-6 shooting, which was superb.
  • How do the Tigers look from long range? They only shot 9-20 against Lindenwood, and 6 of those came from Hayley Frank & Izzy Higginbottom.
  • Can they keep up their ball control? Turnovers have plagued this Tigers squad in the past, and they only had 7 against LU.
  • Top scorers/stats last time out:

Frank: 19 points on 6-12 shooting (4-5 from three), 8 rebounds

AB: 14 points on 5-10 shooting (0-2 from three), 6 rebounds

LDW: 12 points on 5-6 shooting (0-0 from three), 3 rebounds

Izzy: 13 points on 4-9 shooting (2-4 from three), 1 rebound

Next Thursday, Nov. 11, will kick off the new season for Robin Pingeton’s squad as they face Murray State at home. As the MUTigers.com reminded us, the Tigers, much like the men’s side, will have a TOUGH go:

The 2021-22 non-conference schedule features five teams that made the NCAA Tournament last season. Of the 12 non-conference opponents, nine had a winning record with four teams winning 20-plus games. The Tigers will be tested early and often highlighted by contests against Missouri State, Baylor and Illinois.

To get students pumped for the season, Coach P and some of her players, as well as Cuonzo Martin, brought some basketball hoops over to the student center, along with some schedule posters (mine are currently sitting on my home office floor as I figure out where to put them).

Mizzou in the Pros

  • DRUUUUUUUUU is mentioned here! Have a read.
  • The Nuggets (4-4) lost to the Grizzlies (5-3) Wednesday evening, 106-108. In MPJ’s 35 minutes, he had 12 points on 6-12 shooting (0-3 from three), with 11 rebounds (!!), 1 steal, 2 TO, and 1PF, for a +7.
  • The Jazz (6-1) were off on Wednesday night, but play tonight at 6:30pm against the Hawks. On Tuesday night, JC had a HORRIFYING shooting night. I mean… like, it was true nightmare. In his 23 minutes, he had TWO points on 1-13 shooting (0-11 from three), with 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals, 1 TO, and 3 PF. Surprisingly, he was only a —4. Here’s hoping our guy gets it together tonight, huh?
