COLUMBIA — The Missouri tennis team beat Colorado 7-0 on Saturday. The Tigers won all three doubles matches to take the lone doubles point, and they won one point for each of their six singles victories.

Five of Missouri's six singles wins came in straight sets while losing, at most, two games in a set. Senior Kaitlyn Ritchie was the only Tiger who needed a tiebreaker to win her match, 6-3, 3-6, 1-0 (8).

Missouri (12-9, 4-7) will begin play at the Big 12 Championships in Waco, Texas, on Thursday.
