Missouri Tigers Women's Basketball TicketsThe Missouri Tigers women's basketball team loves 20-win seasons. In fact, during the Tigers' past four seasons, it has achieved at least that. The three seasons prior to those 20-win years were 17+-win seasons. In addition to these wins, the Tigers have a seven-year string of postseason appearances, which includes three WNIT and four NCAA tournaments. A record like that can only happen with top-shelf players on the roster, such as Sophie Cunningham. During the 2018-2019 season, she was named to the All-SEC First Team by the Associated Press and Coaches. Cunningham was also selected for the All-SEC Tournament Team and received a WBCA All-America honorable mention. Although Cunningham graduated after the 2018-2019 season, other players, such as freshman Akira Levy, are still in play. Levy was selected to be a member of the All-SEC Freshman Team and promises great things for the future of Mizzou women's basketball.
