WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Sophie Cunningham scored 20 points, Cierra Porter had her 17th career double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds, and No. 16 Missouri won its 11th straight with a 74-48 victory over Xavier on Monday at the West Palm Invitational.

It's Mizzou's longest winning streak since 13 consecutive victories to open the 2015-16 season.

Porter's block on Xavier's last possession of the first half started a Missouri fast break and Jordan Chavis hit a 3-pointer just before the buzzer to give the Tigers a 39-27 lead. Chavis scored all nine of her points in the first half and Porter added six points and six rebounds.

Lauren Aldridge's no-look pass to Jordan Frericks under the basket made it 53-34 midway through the third quarter and Missouri cruised in the fourth.

Aldridge and Frericks each added 10 points for Missouri (11-1), which lost to Western Kentucky 79-76 in the season opener. In the last three games, Cunningham has combined to score 74 points, on just 34 shots, in 75 minutes. Cunningham was also 13 of 21 from 3-point range during the span.

Freshman Deja Ross led Xavier (6-4) with three 3-pointers and 13 points.
