COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Mizzou Women's Basketball earned its fifth consecutive victory on Sunday evening as the Tigers defeated Saint Louis, 74-62, at Chaifetz Arena. Four Tigers scored in double figures in the game, led by senior guard Sophie Cunningham (Columbia, Mo.), who scored 18 points while dishing out a season-high eight assists.

Junior guard Amber Smith (Shreveport, La.) continued her productive ways in the game, as she recorded her third consecutive double-double and sixth of the season with 15 points and 13 rebounds. Smith's 13 boards matched a career-high, which she set one week ago at West Virginia (Dec. 2).

Sophomore forward Emmanuelle Tahane (Bondy, France) and freshman guard Akira Levy (Baxter, Tenn.) joined Cunningham and Smith in double figures with 13 and 11 points, respectively. Tahane set a career-high with her performance, while Levy matched a season-high.

Mizzou will return to Mizzou Arena for its next contest, as the Tigers host South Dakota on Saturday, Dec. 15. Tipoff from Columbia is scheduled for 3 p.m. CT and will be broadcast on SEC Network +.
