COLUMBIA — Missouri made 3 three-pointers in the last 30 seconds against Arkansas Sunday, but it wasn't enough to pull back a lead it had enjoyed briefly in the second half. The women's team lost 69-66.
Missouri gave up a one-point lead with little more than seven minutes to go against Arkansas Sunday and wasn't able to take it back in a tight game against the SEC rival. The teams fought it out in front of a crowd that braved cold and snowy conditions outside Mizzou Arena and were rewarded with free admission and a game that went down to the wire.
Arkansas was able to hold off the Tigers' final push as Bri Kulas knocked down 2 threes and Mogan Eye added another as the final minute ticked off the clock. The Razorbacks made 14 free-throws in the final minute and a half.
Missouri was led in scoring by Kulas and Eye, who each scored 18 points. Arkansas was led by Jessica Jackson with 22 points and 8 rebounds. Melissa Wolff of Arkansas added a double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds.
