Mizzou women’s hoops takes first loss of the season against No. 11 Virginia Tech


The Mizzou women's basketball team fell to No. 11 Virginia Tech 73-57 in the Baha Mar Championships for the team's first loss of the season.

The Tigers led at the half, but VT went on a run in the third quarter outscoring Mizzou 23-9 in the third quarter.

Watch the full press conference with head coach Robin Pingeton below.

Haley Troup led MU with a season-high 21 points, but Troup was the only Tiger to score in double-figures.

"I thought Haley Troup had a heck of a game for us," Pingeton said. "She really showed her veteran leadership, played with great pace and had a really nice game for us."

Hayley Frank finished with eight points and four rebounds, plus Ashton Judd had seven points and three boards.

"It's a great measuring stick for us," Pingeton said. "You lose by 13 or 16 to a team that's going to be ranked top 10, we're not too far away."

Up next - Mizzou will return home Nov. 30 against St. Louis at 7 p.m.
