COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Sophie Cunningham scored 21 points, Jordan Frericks added 19 points and No. 25 Missouri shut down Texas State in the fourth quarter to stay undefeated and pull out an 82-56 win on Monday.
Missouri (12-0), leading 55-48 entering the fourth quarter, limited Texas Sate to eight points over the final 10 minutes. The Bobcats missed their first five field goal attempts in the quarter and made just 3 of 14 from the floor in the frame as the Tigers ran away.
An eight-point Missouri spurt — including a 3-pointer by Cunningham — pushed the once-tight lead over 20 points with 3:37 to go.
Sophie Cunningham grabbed nine rebounds and Lindsey Cunningham had a career-high 14 assists for the Tigers.
Texas State (5-5) was led by Kaitlin Walla with 18 points, including four 3-pointers. Ericka May added 10 points.
