It looked like Missouri was in for a long fight Friday night as the IUPUI Jaguars hung with the Tigers, losing by just three points in the first game. But Missouri came out strong in the second game, posting four points before allowing one to the Jaguars.

No. 4 Missouri dominated in the second game and went on to sweep IUPUI 3-0 (25-22, 25-15, 25-18) to advance to the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Molly Kreklow had 41 assists and 14 digs for the Tigers with.328 hitting. Emily Wilson had seven kills with .294 hitting. Whitney Little finished with six kills, six blocks and .417 hitting.

Missouri will face No. 19 Purdue Saturday at 7:30 p.m. CT. The winner will move on to the regional tournament at Champaign, Ill., Dec. 13-14.
