I think this was a huge accomplishment, MU sophomore Morgan Eye said. This is what we work for, and we always believe in each other. Thats the most important thing for us. This is a great experience for our team, and Im excited about what we have ahead.
Whats ahead for Missouri is seven more regular-season games, starting with Sundays contest against Mississippi State at 1 p.m. at Mizzou Arena. A strong showing could help the Tigers gain a spot in the NCAA Tournament.
The Tigers havent made the tournament since 2006, but that could change if they can work their way up the SEC standings. MU is 15-8 overall and 4-5 in the SEC, tied for seventh place.
This is a program that hasnt had a lot of success in the last couple of years, Tigers coach Robin Pingeton said. Laying the foundation, brick by brick. This is another brick in regards to the foundation.
