Tigers Reset School Points Record in 126-55 Win Over Bradley


COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Mizzou Women's basketball team scored the most points in a game in school history as the Tigers (9-1) defeated Bradley, 126-55, on Sunday afternoon (Dec. 8) at Mizzou Arena. Mizzou made 16 of its first 18 shots from the field and built a 41-9 lead less than 10 minutes into the game. The Tigers were paced by seven players who scored in double-figures while senior Bri Kulas led Mizzou with 27 points, matching her career-high. The 126 points are the most ever by a Tiger team, topping the previous mark of 121, set in 1978 against Missouri-St. Louis.

The Tigers shot 63.5-percent from the floor while playing stifling defense, limiting Bradley to 29.3-percent shooting while forcing 19 turnovers. Mizzou played great team basketball, assisting on 28 of 47 field goals while turning the ball over just 10 times. Aside from Kulas, sophomore Morgan Stock added a career-high 21 points, connecting on 7-of-10 3-pointers. Her sister Maddie Stock added 15 points as she buried four 3-pointers of her own. Also worth noting was freshman Lindsey Cunningham coming off the bench to run the point, dishing a career-high nine assists while committing just one turnover in 21 minutes of action.

Lianna Doty and Kulas provided the early spark for Mizzou. Doty pestered the Braves defensively, converting two quick steals into easy layups in transition. The sophomore point guard also dished out four first-half assists, setting up Kulas and others for open shots. Doty finished with 14 points, five assists and five steals, the latter of which was just one off of a career-high.

Bradley had no answer for Kulas. The senior forward scored 26 of her game-high 27 points in the opening half. After burying two three-pointers in the first five minutes, Kulas powered her way inside for an offensive rebound and put back. Later in the half, she put together a 6-0 run by herself and pushed the Mizzou lead to 53-14 with just over six minutes remaining. She needed just 17 minutes to score her 27 points as she rested much of the second half.

The Tigers controlled a 42-point advantage at the break and the team's 65 first-half points were the most in a half in school history. Mizzou shot better than 68-percent during that span in addition to an 8-for-8 effort from the free throw line.

Morgan Eye sunk three-pointers on back-to-back possessions to open up the second half and the Tigers kept pouring it on. Another Doty steal and layup gave them a 50-point cushion with 17:40 to play.

The Missouri bench capitalized on quality minutes, outscoring the Bradley reserves 60-14. Morgan Stock's fourth trey of the game gave the team its 100th point of the afternoon. Stock posted a career-high 21 points behind seven makes from distance. Mizzou made 18 total shots from beyond the arc, matching a school-record, but the Tigers dealt most of their damage in the paint, holding a 54-16 edge down low.

Missouri is now 9-1 on the season and 6-0 at Mizzou Arena. The Tigers will look to continue their hot shooting when they host Belmont after finals. The game tips off at 7 p.m. Dec. 16.
