We have a schedule!

While we wait for the official full non-con schedules to be announced by Men’s and Women’s Hoops (any day now), the SEC announced their conference schedule for the upcoming women’s basketball season.

Missouri opens their conference slate at home on December 29th against Kentucky.

Here’s a look at Mizzou’s 16-game SEC slate, highlighted by a tough stretch from January 12th-22nd.

And with the WNBA Playoffs starting last night, former Tiger star Sophie Cunningham was featured on ESPN’s Top 25 players in the postseason — coming in at No. 25.

From Mizzou Made’s M.A. Voepel:

“Cunningham turns 26 on Tuesday and has grown up as a player the past two seasons with Phoenix. She’s a candidate this year for the league’s most-improved player, as her scoring, rebounding and assists averages are all career highs. Cunningham had some big moments in the 2021 playoffs, building on that season when a beleaguered Mercury team really needed it.”

Cunningham and the Mercury started their playoff run last night against the Las Vegas Aces on ESPN in Game 1 of a best-of-three series.

The Mercury lost to the Aces in Game 1 79-63. Cunningham had 12 points (4-7 FG), four rebounds, two assists, and a steal in 36:44.

A couple of highlights to share:

Cunningham’s stay in the WNBA Playoffs is likely to be short-lived just due to the fact that the Mercury are playing the top-seeded Aces, but it’s good to see that she is getting the national recognition that she deserves.

Game 2 of the best-of-three series comes your way on Saturday night in Vegas (8:00 p.m. CT on ESPN2).
