Mizzou dominates West Virginia in SEC/Big 12 Challenge

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Amber Smith poured in 28 points and grabbed 13 rebounds and Missouri’s defense stood out in a 68-51 victory at No. 21 West Virginia in women’s basketball action Sunday.

Tynice Martin scored 18 points and Kari Niblack added 10 for the Mountaineers (4-2), who shot just 27.9 percent in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge.

Haley Troup added 14 points for the Tigers (6-2), who outscored WVU 14-6 in the second quarter to lead 34-23 at the half.

“Needless to say, you can’t shoot 12 percent in the second quarter,” West Virginia coach Mike Carey said. “We probably missed 10 layups and a lot of easy shots. Very disappointing.”

The Mountaineers were held to a season-low output after averaging 85.8 points per game.

Naomi Davenport shoot 4-of-20 from the floor in scoring nine points.

“It just seemed like she didn’t have any energy today, didn’t have lift on her shot. I think she got a little frustrated, missing some easy ones she normally makes,” Carey said.

The game drew 1,273 to the WVU Coliseum.
