Mizzou women’s season ends with loss to Oklahoma

By The Associated Press and mutigers.com

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Missouri couldn’t hold onto a 12-point lead, allowing Oklahoma to rally and post a 70-59 win. Sharane Campbell scored 22 points in Thursday’s quarterfinal game in the Big 12 women’s tournament.

Christine Flores led the 10th-seeded Tigers (13-18) with 18 points, and Liene Priede had 15.

Missouri bolted to early leads of 8-0 and 13-2, and the Tigers were up 35-23 just after intermission. But the Sooners reeled off 15 consecutive points, the final four by Campbell, to go ahead for good 38-35 with 12:14 left. They did not trail again.

Freshman Morgan Eye finishes the season No. 3 on Missouri’s 3-pointer list with 63. Flores finishes with 26 double-digit scoring games for the season and 63 for her career.
