It was just one of those days for Missouri women’s basketball in its home game against Ole Miss. When the Rebels came rolling into Mizzou Arena, things got ugly for the Tigers, as they struggled on both sides of the ball.

Ole Miss’ Shakira Austin got things started. Her presence in the paint was unmatched, and the Rebels (18-4, 6-3 Southeastern Conference) made sure to utilize her against a smaller-sized Missouri team. This and the inability to get into an offensive flow led to a 61-45 loss, the lowest-scoring outing for the Tigers (16-7, 5-5) this season.
