COLUMBIA — As temperatures continued to plummet outside Mizzou Arena on Sunday afternoon, the Missouri women's basketball team began its conference home opener with uncharacteristically cold shooting. The Tigers connected on just two field goals in the first 10 minutes and shot 26.9 percent during the first half on the way to their first Southeastern conference loss of the season, 69-66, to Arkansas.
