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.
