The Missouri Tigers women’s basketball team has been ridiculously dominant during the 2017-2018 season. Through twenty-eight regular season games, the Tigers have just five losses. In SEC play, Mizzou is tied with Georgia for third place as both teams sit at 11-4. The only teams above the Tigers are No. 5 South Carolina, who Mizzou has both beaten and lost to this season, and No. 2 Mississippi State, a team who has not lost a game this season. The Missouri Tigers sit at No.11 in the nation, and in Thursday’s game versus Vanderbilt, Mizzou continued their winning ways.

The Tigers picked up their sixth win in a row Thursday, defeating Vanderbilt 83-68. This game was Mizzou’s seconds-to-last regular season game of the season and their last home game of the year. Jordan Frericks, in her last game at Mizzou Arena, was the bright spot for the Tigers. She put up 16 points to go along with 12 rebounds and a career-high nine assists. With her double-digit rebounding performance, Frericks surpassed the 1000 career rebound mark in front of the home crowd.

Frericks was not the only senior playing her last game at Mizzou Arena on Thursday. Bri Porter, who is out for the season due to an ACL injury, was honored alongside Frericks and Kayla Michael. Michael finished with four points and three blocks on the night.

Mizzou’s next matchup will be in College Station, Texas as the Tigers will face off against Texas A&M in their last regular season game of the season.
