Women’s Hoops Continues to Rack up Honors After Landmark Victory

Mizzou Football commits shine in the Under Armour All American game
Written by publishing team

Tuesday was a big day for the Mizzou Women’s Hoops, as the Tigers went on to claim well-deserved titles for their performance against the previously unbeaten, but still number one in the nation, South Carolina. They got so much recognition, one might think that tigers would definitely be ranked now, especially after they got a “no” back then. 4 Team Baylor rated their way down the wire about a month ago. Well, friends, you are wrong. Tigers stay outside looking inward, for now at least.

The morning began with a pair of Co-SEC Player of the Week awards for Hayley Frank and Lauren Hansen.

If you watch the match – watch it twice; she was who – which Good – Frankie and Hansen each scored 21 points in the Tigers’ 1st win at South Carolina State. Frankie was a fantastic 7-of-8 from the field and 3-for-4 from behind the arc, while Hansen had a career-high seven boards.

Aside from the team’s high points, it was the contributions of these two ladies in the last minutes of the OT that ultimately earned the W for Mizu in the end. According to

After Frank’s throw with 40 seconds left to cut South Carolina’s lead to one, the Tigers had one possession to take the lead. Hansen received a screen from Frank and headed for the bulldozer to throw the ball with 0.1 seconds left on the clock to give Mizzou the historic victory.

In the afternoon, Coach Pingeton was honored as Coach of the Week by Women’s Hoop Dirt and ESPN writer, Mechelle Voepels (more on her below). The amazing Coach P is that she doesn’t want all the credit, though, and has given that honor to so many people.

Here’s what Women’s Hoop Dirt had to say about Coach P’s professional coaching lessons:

Coach Bington and Missouri scored a historic win this week, defeating the nation’s top team in the second-last layup in overtime. The Tigers entered Thursday’s game against seeded South Carolina with only eight players available due to COVID protocols, but they held a six-point lead in the game. Although South Carolina was able to force overtime, junior goalkeeper Lauren Hansen slotted in a corner kick with 0.1 seconds left in the overtime to push Mizuo to a stunning 70-69 win. The win was Missouri’s first-ever against a No. 1 ranked opponent (0-8 previously). Now 12-2 (1-0 SEC) in the season, the Tigers will be looking to extend their winning streak to five when they host Auburn on Thursday night.

Finally, members of the National Basketball Writers Association honored Mizzou as Team of the Week.

Here’s more from USBWA on choosing Mizzou as Team of the Week (plus how to select him):

Missouri missed their team’s top player and made a shortlist, upsetting South Carolina #1, by defeating the Gamecocks just before overtime ended, only the tenth time in the 46-year history of the AP Women’s Poll that an unranked squad had knocked out the first team. As a result, Haley Frank and Lauren Hansen, with 21 points each and game-winner Hansen with 0.1 seconds remaining, became participating players at this week’s Southeastern Conference, the third time the Co-SEC weekly honor has come from the same team. , the others being LSU in 2000 and South Carolina in 2002. This was the Tigers’ first-ever win on the first team.

** The pool of nominees was selected from weekly conference citations as well as public additions that include an expanded governing committee focused on women’s basketball, chaired by Vice President Mel Greenberg.

Another related piece of Mizzou Women’s Hoops information appeared Monday in the form of ESPN’s Power Ratings by writer Mechelle Voepel. Did Mizu make her order? of course not. She didn’t even put them in her top 25 list. But Mizzou found herself heavily mentioned in the article, so it’s an honor to be mentioned among all the bands she deemed worthwhile? [dramatic sigh]

On the site this week, Lauren will talk about why Mizzou deserves to be ranked, by the way, but I can’t help but bring it up here too. I’m angry, you are.

This is a completely ridiculous statement: “Tigers have recovered after their close upset against Baylor”

That’s enough of me at the top.
