It’s that time of year!

For the first time in the 2022-2023 season, basketball was being played against another team at Mizzou Arena last night (albeit in an exhibition, but still).

The Missouri Women’s Basketball team opened up exhibition play with a 70-27 blowout victory over Northwest Missouri State.

The Tigers started the game off out on a 34-0 (!!!!!) run before the Bearcats FINALLY scored their first points with under four minutes to go in the 2nd quarter.


  • Junior center Jayla Kelly (from Parkway Central High School in the St. Louis area) led the team with 12 points.
  • Senior forward Hayley Frank led the team with 13 rebounds.
  • Junior guard Mama Dembele led the team with four assists.
