THIS IS MISSOURI SOUTHERN IMAGINE THE FUN

Just like college students everywhere, you will find times when you need to “blow off some steam.” When you do, you will find that sometimes there is so much going on at Missouri Southern, it is hard to pick and choose. Free activities happen throughout the year: ball games, plays, music concerts, campus-wide picnics, lectures by famous people, intramural sports, and more. The Billingsly Student Center offers pool tables, the campus bookstore, and the ticket office with discount tickets to area concerts, attractions, and professional sporting events. The Campus Activities Board (CAB), a student-run group, plans concerts and special events for the campus. Joplin is also a fun place to live and learn. There are movie theaters, restaurants, and a large shopping mall less than a mile from campus. And if you feel like getting away for a while, Kansas City, Mo. is a 2 1/2 hour drive from Joplin, and Branson and Tulsa, Okla. are less than two hours away. The Four-State Region is also a great place for hiking, fishing, camping, and canoeing.

JOPLIN COMMUNITY

Joplin is located in southwest Missouri in the “four states” region encompassing Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas. At the edge of the Ozark Mountain region, Joplin has a current population of 49,024. The daytime population swells to 270,000 while the population within a 40 mile radius of Joplin is 400,000, making it Missouri’s fourth largest metropolitan area. Joplin combines the beauty and hospitality of country living with the convenience and commerce of city vitality.

ATHLETIC EXCELLENCE In Search of Excellence

It’s exciting to be a part of Missouri Southern athletics, both as a participant and as a fan. The Missouri Southern Lions have been Conference (NSIC or MIAA) Champions in football, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s track and field, men’s soccer, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, softball, and tennis. The football team claimed the NAIA Division II National Championship in 1972 and the MidAmerica Intercollegiate Athletics Association title in 1993. The Lions currently have two players on NFL rosters and many others participating in professional sports. The Lions’ softball team has been a participant in regional action, and in 1992 won the NCAA Division II National Championship. The men’s basketball team hosted and won the NCAA Division II South Central Regional Tournament and advanced to the Division II Final Four in 2000, while the baseball team has made numerous trips to the College World Series, finishing second in the nation in 1991. Both MSSU men and women have had national champions in track. In all, Missouri Southern has claimed 51 conference crowns, including 41 since joining the MIAA.

Quality Athletes

Each year Missouri Southern student-athletes are recognized by coaches around the conference as All-MIAA performers, while several also are named to All-America teams. MSSU men and women have been named MIAA Most Valuable Player, Rookie of the Year and Ken B. Jones Award winners (for outstanding studentathlete in the conference), and have also been National Player of the Year honorees, as well as finalists for national awards such as the Harlon Hill Trophy in football. In 2008 and 2009, the women’s cross country and outdoor track and field teams claimed MIAA titles with the 2009 cross country team finishing third in Division II. The Women’s Track and Field and Cross Country team was ranked the fifth best overall program by the Coaches Association in 2009-10, while the men’s program was ranked 9th in 2014-15. The men’ and women’s cross country teams, as well as baseball won MIAA titles in 2014-15. The Men's track and field team won the MIAA Outdoor Title in 2016, while two student-athletes won individual National Championships in the pole vault and 10k. The Southern softball team has appeared in 18 of the last 22 conference tournaments. Men’s basketball has earned 18 straight berths to post season tournament and has an overall record of 237-123 over last nine years. Women’s basketball has gone to 11 of the last 12 conference tourneys and in 2014-15 had its first 20-win season since 1995-96. The golf team was fourth at the regional in 2009.

Solid Students

Of course the primary goal of any institution of higher education is to graduate its students. At Missouri Southern that philosophy is no different. Student-athletes wearing the Green & Gold also get the job done in the classroom. In the last ten years, the Lions have boasted a graduation rate of 77.3 percent. MSSU studentathletes also have maintained cumulative team grade-point averages above the 3.0 mark. For their efforts, Southern’s student-athletes are routinely named to the MIAA Academic Honor Roll teams, as well as the Academic All-MIAA, Presidential Scholar Athlete, and Academic All-District and All-America squads. In all, more than 70 Lions have been named Academic All-America.

Contributors in the Community

Not only do they perform on the field and in the classroom, but Missouri Southern’s Lions are also involved in the Joplin community. They work with such organizations as the Special Olympics, the Ronald McDonald House, the Boy’s and Girl’s Club, Adopt-A-Street, and the Children’s Miracle Network, Rebuild Joplin and are frequently contacted by schools in the area with requests for special visits. Missouri Southern’s studentathletes are frequently invited to serve as hosts and guest speakers for special events in Joplin and the surrounding communities.

Outstanding Facilities

Of course, to be competitive, teams need quality facilities. Missouri Southern has those. The Leggett & Platt Athletic Center, constructed in 1999 with seating for more than 3,200, contains three gymnasiums, an indoor competition track, an incredible weight room and state-of-the-art sports rehabilitation facilities. In addition, Robert Ellis Young Gymnasium includes courts for basketball, racquetball and volley ball, and a six-lane swimming pool. The surfaces for football and outdoor track & field at Fred G. Hughes Stadium underwent a major renovation in 2003. The football field was given a new, top-of-the-line artificial playing surface in 2015 and the all-weather track was equipped with a new all-weather surface, upgrading it to a national meet-caliber facility. A new End Zone Facility at Fred G. Hughes Stadium allowed for upgrades in locker rooms, training room facilities, as well as a state-of-the-art strength and conditioning facility. Other outdoor facilities include lighted tennis courts, several soccer fields, two softball fields and one of the finest cross country courses in the nation. The course hosted regional meets in 1999, 2001, 2004, 2007, 2012, and 2015, as well as the 1999, 2007, 2012, and 2015 NCAA Division II Championships.

LEGGETT & PLATT ATHLETIC CENTER LIONS AT HOME

The 2016-17 season marks the 18th year for the Missouri Southern basketball teams to call the 80,000 square-foot Leggett & Platt Athletic Center home. In their first 17 years in the building, the Southern women have posted a 153-69 record.

The 2016-17 season brings continued excitement to Missouri Southern, as the Lions begin their 18th season in the Leggett & Platt Athletic Center. In their first 17 years in the facility, the Missouri Southern women have posted a 153-69 (.689) home record. The $7.5 million dollar complex was completed in the fall of 1999 and dedicated on Oct. 15 of that season. The 80,000 square-foot facility seats more than 3,200 fans, and has individual chair-back seating on both sides of the court with bleacher seating on one end. The Lion basketball teams play on the arena’s wooden parquet floor with press and event staff seating on either side of the court. The Leggett & Platt Athletic Center also houses two synthetic basketball courts on either side of the main court, and has the capability of hosting volleyball competition. But basketball and volleyball aren’t the only sports that can be held in the Leggett & Platt Athletic Center. The facility also houses the six-lane, 200-meter indoor Mercy Track, funded by and named for Mercy Hospital. The track gives Southern’s track & field teams an indoor training facility and is used to host indoor track & field competition, including the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association Championships every other year. Another feature of the Leggett & Platt Athletic Center is the Freeman Fitness Center, which includes a state-of-the-art weight room and athletic training facility. The fitness center was made possible by contributions from Freeman Health Systems. The Athletic Center also houses offices for coaches and administrators, lockerrooms and classrooms. The Leggett & Platt Athletic Center replaced Robert Ellis Young Gymnasium as home of the Southern basketball teams. The Lion women enjoyed great success in the 1,700-seat Young Gymnasium, posting a record of 217-88 (.728) in 25 years.

Ressel is entering his 15th season as part of the athletic department at Missouri Southern, serving as an assistant with both the men's and women's programs. A 1992 graduate of Missouri Southern, he returned to his alma mater for the 2002-03 campaign after spending ten years at Rend Lake College in Ina, Ill. During his three years as an assistant for the women, Ressel had helped the team to a 57-27 record and a 38-22 mark in the MIAA. In 2015-16 the team saw two players earn All-MIAA status as Sharese Jones was a first-team selection, while Deb Holcomb was a third-team pick. Jones also joined the 1,000 point club on Nov. 24, 2015 in a game against Avila and finished her career in fourth place in points with 1,421. She is fifth in career rebounds (651) while achieving the second-best career free throw percentage (.824) and holding a career field goal percentage of .501. For the four seasons prior to his time with the women, Ressel mentored the posts at Southern including 2012 MIAA Player of the Year, Keane Thomann. He was elevated to the position of men's Associate Head Coach in 2010-11, and was instrumental with his help in development of the guards and overall program at Southern. Former Lion Skyler Bowlin was the MIAA's Player and Defender of the Year in 2011, and was a four-time member of the MIAA's All-Defensive team. He is the Lions' all-time leader in three-pointers and ranks fourth all-time in scoring and second in free-throw percentage. He was selected to three different All-American teams, while being named All-Region and the Region Player of the Year. He was also a finalist for National Player of the Year. In 11 years with the Lions, Ressel helped the team to a 204-145 record, including 11-straight appearances in the MIAA Postseason Tournament. The Lions played in the conference tournament title game in 2005 and again in 2011. At Rend Lake College, Ressel produced a record of 118-92 and was named Great Rivers Athletic Conference Coach of the Year in 1996. A year later, Ressel led Rend Lake to a GRAC co-championship. Also during his stint at Rend Lake, he served as assistant softball coach and coordinator of the Rend Lake Fitness Center. Since 1997, he had served as Region 24 Women's Basketball Division I Committee Chairman. Prior to taking over Rend Lake's women's program, he served as assistant men's basketball coach from 1992-95 after serving one season as a student assistant for Lions head coach Robert Corn in 1991-92. Ressel enjoyed his share of success throughout his playing and coaching careers. A two-year letterman at Missouri Southern, he averaged 6.7 points, 2.5 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game. He led the Lions in assists in both the 1989-90 and 1990-91 seasons and was awarded the Don Gross Leadership Award following his senior campaign. He and his wife, Pamela, have a son, Kristopher, who is autistic and non-verbal and has competed in three triathlons.

JAMESIA "MESI" PRICE ASSISTANT COACH

Missouri Southern Women's Basketball interim head coach Ronnie Ressel announced the hiring of Jamesia Price as an assistant coach today July 5, 2016. Jamesia "Mesi" graduated from Saint Louis University with a bachelors degree in Communications and a masters of arts in higher education while playing basketball for the Billikens and coach Lisa Stone. Mesi set career records for the Bills in steals (202) and games played (125) while finishing third in school history in assists with 407 and ninth in three point field goals with 101 career treys. She was the first player in SLU history to swipe 200 career steals and dish out 400 career assists. "I'm extremely excited to have Jamesia Price join the Lion staff. She comes highly recommend from Glen Box, Assistant at the University of Indiana, who I have known for a longtime. Jamesia has all the intangibles you look for in an assistant coach. She has a great work ethic, she's a great communicator and is driven and motivated to be successful. She has a tremendous passion for the game of basketball, teaching and mentoring young ladies. Coach Price will be a great addition and fit with Coach O'Brien and myself," said Ressel. Mesi's senior season saw her score a season high 15 points and swipe a season-high five steals in the A-10 Championships against Rhode Island on her way to her second consecutive A-10 All-Defensive team selection. Price was also named the Atlantic 10 Commissioner's Honor Roll both semesters during her senior season while receiving the Saint Louis University's Exemplary Achievement Award for making significant contributions to the advancement of the Billiken women's basketball program. Price ranked third in the A-10 during her senior season in steals per game (2.1) and 14th in assists per game (2.9) while her 70 steals on the season set a record for Billiken seniors and it is second on the SLU all-time single season list. During her junior season Mesi was the first ever Billiken women's basketball player to be named to the A-10 All-Defensive Team and she was named an All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year by the National Strength Coaches Association. She garnered the same All-American honor during her sophomore season after sitting out the 2012-13 season due to an injury. "I am looking forward to starting my coaching career here at Missouri Southern State University and excited to be a part of such a wonderful program filled with great people," said Price.

Head coach Ronnie Ressel takes over the program after being the lead assistant for the previous three seasons. Two new assistant coaches and a roster that returns as many newcomers as returnees awaits Lions fans this winter. “I’m excited,” Ressel said with a smile. “Switching to the women’s side was a great move for me and my family. I thought it would be more enjoyable for me and I could do some really good things.” All of those seasons learning and gaining experience has taught Ressel many things but the most important may be patience. “As a young coach when I was in junior college before coming to Southern from Rend Lake 15 years ago, I’ve matured and have become more patient. I don’t think any more you can yell and scream all of the time. You have to be patient with kids and they respond to that type of motivation.”

Deb had a really nice year for us last year and is one of our leaders. The nice thing for her this season is that she won’t have to bear a lot of the offense on her shoulders. We have some kids who can score the ball and that will help her. I think Kayla Kivinski could have a breakout kind of year.”

Beginning with an exhibition on November 8 at The Leggett and Platt Athletic Center versus Livin The Dream, the Lions will play away from home versus the likes of Southwestern Oklahoma State and Oklahoma Baptist in the GAC/MIAA Challenge, as well as contests with Harding, Quincy and others.

Weatherford, Okla. - The Missouri Southern Lions Women’s Basketball team started their 2015-16 season off on the right foot as they beat Oklahoma Baptist 72-63 in the GAC/MIAA Challenge hosted by Southwestern Oklahoma State on Friday afternoon. Missouri Southern was led by senior Sharese Jones as she poured in 19 points and pulled down 10 rebounds on the afternoon. The Lions got things started just seconds into the game as junior transfer Deb Holcomb drained a three pointer for a 3-0 lead. Oklahoma Baptist went on an 8-2 run to take a 8-5 lead and keep that lead until just over two minutes left in the half as Southern regained the lead at 36-35 on a layup from Jones that was part of a 20-4 run that saw the Lions outscore OBU 25-12 in the second quarter and take a 45-37 lead into halftime. In the second quarter Southern started to close the gap when a pair of free throws from Jones ignited a 15-2 run that saw Jones go 5-for-5 from the charity stripe and add a layup to give Southern a two point lead, 37-35 with 2:14 to play in the half. The Lions never looked back as they closed the half on a 6-2 run to open an eight point lead at 45-37. The third quarter started with OBU’s Cameerah Graves hitting a layup to pull the Bison within six at 45-39, that would be the closest Oklahoma Baptist would get as the Lions answered back with a jumper from freshman Chelsey Henry and from there Southern methodically pushed the lead into double digits with Kivinski hitting a free throw with 2:44 left in the quarter to give Southern a 13 point lead at 55-42. The Lions lead would get up to 13 points twice in the fourth as Jones hit a layup to make it 61-48 with 7:34 on the clock and then again with sophomore Jordan Dinyer drove the lane to make it 65-52 with just over five minutes to play. Oklahoma Baptist would work to get the lead down to six after a three pointer from McKenzie Cooper at 67-61 before Jones would hit two more free throws to make it 69-61 with 1:28 to play. On the very next trip down the court the Bison again got the lead down to six on a layup from Raquel Dudzevich before Holcomb would close out the game like she started with a three-pointer.

Weatherford, Okla. - Senior Sharese Jones led the Missouri Southern Lions (2-0) to a 71-68 victory in the final game of the MIAA/GAC Challenge hosted by Southwestern Oklahoma State University. Southwestern Oklahoma would have its first lead on the game’s second possession as Hailey Tucker drilled a three pointer to give the Bulldogs a 3-0 lead. Southern answered back with a jumper from Shavers off the assist from senior Tami Morice and on the next possession took their first lead on a layup from Jones off the assist from senior Kenya Wilson-Brown. SWOSU would go on a mini 4-0 run to retake the lead at 8-4 before the Lions answered with a 6-0 run of their own, four points from Jones and two from Shavers. Sophomore Jenson Maydew drilled a three with 3:48 left in the quarter to put the Lions up four at 13-9. Southwestern Oklahoma had another 4-0 run to tie the game at 15-15 before Maydew sank two charities to give the Lions another two point lead, 17-15, and Jones with another layup made it 19-15 with just over a min left in the quarter. SWOSU took a one point lead, 20-19, into the quarter break. SWOSU opened their lead to three, 22-19, on another jumper from Jones just eight seconds into the second quarter. From there the Lions would take over the second as they held the Bulldogs to just six points. A 16-2 run over the first six minutes of the quarter would give Southern a 35-24 lead with 3:37 to play in the half before sophomore Dru Clark would send the Lions into halftime with a three that just beat the buzzer for a 38-26 lead. The third quarter started much like the first half ended as the Lions pushed their lead up to 17, 43-26, after a lay-up from Jones and a three pointer from Holcomb. Another 6-0 run by Southwestern Oklahoma finished out the quarter to bring the Bulldogs within two at 50-48. SWOSU tied the game on the first possession in the fourth as Morgan Vogt drove the lane for a layup and a jumper from Janae Coffee gave SWOSU their first lead since the start of the second quarter. Hailey Tucker’s pair of free throws with 5:19 on the clock gave what SWOSU thought would be the lead for good at 60-57. Holcomb would drain yet another three pointer to give the Lions a 69-68 lead. Holcomb would find Shavers for a layup with 15 seconds left to give Southern the 71-68 win.

Joplin, Mo. - The Missouri Southern women used a 16-4 run to close out the second quarter and take the lead for good as the Lions defeated Minnesota State Mankato 70-58 Wednesday night on Robert Corn Court inside The Leggett & Platt Athletic Center. Southern (3-0) opened the game with a layup from junior Deb Holcomb as the Lions and Minnesota State (0-1) traded buckets for the first six minutes before the Mavericks went on a 7-0 run to build a 19-12 advantage with just under three minutes to play in the first quarter. The Lions answered with a 9-2 run to close the quarter and take a one point lead, 21-20, into the break. Minnesota State used a 4-0 run to take a three point lead, 24-21, to open the second quarter of play before sophomore Jenson Maydew drilled a three pointer from the top of the key to give the game its seventh and final tie at 24-24 with just under six and a half minutes to play in the half. From that point Southern rallied off the 16-4 run for the 37-28 lead headed into the locker room. During that run Maydew contributed five points, sophomores Jordan Dinyer and Kayla Kivinski each had four, freshman Chelsey Henry sank a pair of free throws, and Holcomb added one point. Minnesota State opened the third quarter with a 5-0 run, all from Madison Lee, to cut the Lions’ lead down to four at 37-33. Sophomore Bri Shavers ended that run with a layup from senior Tami Morice to put Southern back up six. Three free throws from the Mavericks cut the lead down to three, the closest that MSU would get for the rest of the game, at 39-36, with just over seven minutes to play in the third. A 6-0 run, buckets from Holcomb and seniors Kenya Wilson-Brown and Sharese Jones pushed the lead back up to nine, 45-36, at the five minute media timeout. After cutting the lead down to four Kivinski would sink three free throws to give the Lions a seven point lead, 50-43, headed into the final quarter. Holcomb started the fourth quarter with a driving bucket to put the Lions up nine at 52-43. Following a 6-0 run by Minnesota State to cut the lead down to three, Holcomb answered with a three pointer off the dime from Wilson-Brown pushed the lead back up to nine with just over five minutes to play.

Joplin, Mo. – The Missouri Southern women’s basketball team used a 9-0 run late in the third quarter to pull away and held on to defeat visiting Central Missouri 62-59 on Robert Corn Court inside the Leggrett & Platt Athletic Center today.

Sharese Jones had 16 points and eight rebounds, while Desirea Buerge scored 13 points and added a career-high eight rebounds. Central had a five-point lead (9-4) after a layup from Winkelman with 6:03 left in the first quarter, but a layup from Holcomb as time expired in the quarter cut the Central lead to just one (15-14). A layup from Dru Clark with 17:31 left in the quarter gave the Lions a 16-15 lead, but Central answered back the next trip down and led from that point on in the half. The Jennies led by as many as six (22-16) with 4:15 left in the half, but a layup from Tami Morice with 1:31 to go made the halftime score 22-20, UCM. After the halftime break, the Lions made their move. A layup from Buerge with 7:18 left in the quarter tied the score at 28 and a three from Jones with 6:19 to go gave the Lions a 31-30 lead. A jumper from Holcomb with 3:12 left in the quarter capped off a 9-0 run by the Lions and gave Southern a 37-30 lead. The lead would be 41-36 at the end of the quarter. After a Central bucket, an offensive rebound and a put back from Jones with two to go made the score 56-55, Lions and a three from Buerge with 1:30 to go gave the Lions a four-point advantage (59-55). On the ensuing possession, the Lions forced a defensive stop and after the rebound, Holcomb was fouled, making one of the two free throws. A three from the Jennies cut the Lions’ lead to 60-59 with 20 seconds to go and a turnover by the Lions on the in bounds play gave the ball back to Central with 19.3 seconds to go. However, solid defense from the Lions forced a bad shot from Central and Jones made both free throws to put Southern up 62-59 with 0.7 seconds on the clock. A last-second shot for the Jennies was no good. Southern shot 38 percent from the field and 75 percent from the free throw line. Southern forced 15 UCM turnovers and scored 15 points off of the miscues.

St. Charles, Mo. – In her final game in her hometown senior Sharese Jones drained a pair of free throws with 24 seconds left to seal the 71-68 win over the Lindenwood Lady Lions Saturday afternoon inside Robert F. Hyland Arena. Jones finished the game with 18 points as she passed both Erin Rice and MSSU Athletics Hall of Famer Katie (Gariss) Marsh for eight place on the all-time scoring list with 1,231 career points. Sophomore Dru Clark got the scoring started on the third possession of the game as she connected from three point range off the assist from freshman Desirea Buerge. A three point play from Jones gave the Lions a 6-0 lead before Lindenwood scored on a jumper from Jenny Rocha. The bucket by Rocha sparked a 7-1 run by the Lady Lions to tie the game at 7-7. Following a pair of buckets by each team a pair of free throws from senior Tami Morice gave Southern an 11-9 lead. Junior Deb Holcomb hit her first three pointer with 3:24 left in the quarter to increase the Lions lead to 14-9. Those two buckets sparked a 11-5 run to close the quarter and give Southern a 20-14 lead at the end of the first quarter. On the opening possession of the second half, Jones drove the lane for a lay-up off the assist from fellow senior Kenya Wilson-Brown. After a three pointer from Charisse Williams cut Southern’s lead to six at 38-32, Jones once again answered with a lay-up this time off the assist from Clark. A pair of free throws from Clark pushed the Lions’ lead back to double digits at 42-32 with 6:33 to play in the third. From there Lindenwood went on a 13-2 run to take a one point lead, 45-44, with 1:29 to play in the third. Southern closed the third out on a 5-0 run on a three point play and a three from Holcomb for the 50-45 lead after three quarters of play. Lindenwood opened the final quarter of play with a three pointer from Kylie Ferguson to cut the lead to two at 50-48 before Morice answered with a layup off the assist from a driving Jones. A free throw from Jones made it 53-48 Southern before Jenny Rocha drained a running jumper to cut the lead back down to three at 53-50. Another layup from Jones pushed the lead back to five and Gengenbacher hit only one of two free throws on the next possession to give Southern a 55-51 lead. Wilson-Brown was fouled driving to the bucket and fell hard to the ground forcing freshman Chelsey Henry to enter the game and she promptly sank both free throws to make it a 57-51 Southern lead with 6:48 to play. With just 24 seconds left in her final game in her hometown Jones stepped to the line with Southern up two 68-66 and sank both free throws to give them a 70-66 lead. Those two charities moved her past the hall of famer Katie (Gariss) Marsh for eighth place on the MSSU All-Time leading scorer list. A pair of free throws from LU’s Jenny Rocha cut the lead to two at 70-68 and Southern’s Clark sank one of two with 14 seconds left before Rocha’s desperation three from the top of the key sailed right as the buzzer sounded for the 71-68 win for Southern.

Maryville, Mo. – The Missouri Southern Women’s basketball team used two 14-0 runs to defeat Northwest Missouri State 57-47 Wednesday night inside Bearcat Arena. Northwest Missouri got the scoring started as Tember Schechinger converted a transition opportunity with a lay-up off a Lions miss for the early 2-0 lead. Southern answered back with a pair of free throws from junior Deb Holcomb tied the game at 2-2 just under two minutes into the game. A lay-up from Tanya Meyer gave the Bearcats a 4-2 lead before senior Sharese Jones sank a pair of charities for a 4-4 tie. Both teams went cold over the next four minutes until Schechinger scored on a driving lay-up at the 3:30 mark to give Northwest Missouri a 6-4 lead. Following a media time out with 2:35 to go in the quarter freshman Chelsey Henry gave the Lions their first lead a 7-6 before Holcomb converted a three point play to go up 10-6. Northwest Missouri clawed back into the game with a 4-0 run to end the quarter and sent the game into the quarter break tied at 10-10. Coming out of the quarter break the Bearcats picked up where they left off extending their run to 10-0 and taking a 16-10 lead and following a pair of free throws from Shelby Mustain Northwest Missouri held its largest lead at 21-12. With four minutes left in the half Southern went to work on the offensive end. Sophomore Dru Clark hit a streaking Jones for a lay-up to cut the lead to seven then sophomore Jenson Maydew took matters into her own hands draining back-to-back three pointers and a jumper off the right wing from senior Tami Morice to give Southern a 22-21 lead headed into the locker room. The Lions started the third quarter like they ended the first half, perfect from the free throw line, as freshman Desirea Buerge sank a pair just fifteen seconds into the quarter. Senior Kenya Wilson-Brown got into the scoring column as she banked home a 15 foot jump shot after Northwest Missouri gave her all kinds of space. After a jumper from Taylor Shull cut the Missouri Southern lead down to four, Jones took advantage of a Northwest Missouri defender falling as she converted a wide open lay-up with 3:18 left to play in the third for a 35-29 lead. Northwest Missouri’s Shelby Mustain cut the Lions’ lead down to four on a lay-up with 1:27 left before Southern’s Clark drained a three from the left wing with 33 seconds left to send the Lions into the quarter break with a 38-31 lead. Jasmin Howe started the fourth quarter with a three to cut the Missouri Southern lead down to four at 38-34 before Jones connected with Maydew for a wide open lay-up to put the Lions back up six at 40-34 just 47 seconds into the final quarter. A pair of free throws from Jones pushed the lead to 12, 46-34 before getting fouled on a wide open lay-up and a technical foul called on Northwest Missouri’s Macy Williams with 5:02 to play. Jones sank all four free throws as the Lions extended their lead to 16, 50-34. Following three empty trips up and down the court Jones grabbed her own miss and was fouled on the put back to send her to the line once again. After sinking the first free throw, her 18th point on the night, Jones passes Suzanne Sutton (1983-86) for seventh place on Missouri Southern Women’s Basketball scoring list. Northwest Missouri battled back with a 7-0 run to cut the lead down to nine at 56-47 before a free throw from Wilson-Brown with 20 seconds left sealed the 57-47 win for the Lions.

Joplin, Mo. - The Missouri Southern Women’s Basketball team fought hard for 40 min Saturday afternoon but dropped a heartbreaker to sixth ranked Missouri Western 71-70 on Robert Corn Court inside The Leggett & Platt Athletic Center. The loss drops the Lions to 14-7, 8-7 in the MIAA while Missouri Western breaks a two game losing skid to improve to 19-2 overall and 13-2 in conference play. In a game that saw five ties and six lead changes each team largest lead was no more than nine, Missouri Western with 4:31 left in the first and the Lions largest lead was by five with 8:37 to play. The game was evenly matched throughout as both teams shot around 45 percent, 45.8 for Southern and 44.4 for the Griffons, from the floor; the Lions out rebounded Missouri Western 31-30; and both teams shot 20 or more free throws while only missing seven combined. Southern dished out 16 assists to Griffons’ 10 and the Lions came up with five blocks to Western’s four. MWSU had the advantage in steals 7-2 and in turnovers 9-17. The game came down to the final possession for both teams as Missouri Western’s Sarafina Hardy threw up a desperation three with 1.4 seconds left that found the bottom of the net and was fouled. She sank the free throw for the four point play and to give the Griffons a 71-70 lead. Missouri Southern advanced the ball into the front court with their final 30 second time out and after coming out of the huddle they couldn’t get a good look at the bucket as they fell to the sixth ranked Griffons. Junior Deb Holcomb led the Lions with 24 points on 9-for-15 shooting, 6-for-9 from three point range. Senior Sharese Jones continues her climb into the record books as she passed Patti (Killian) Coleman (1977-81) for sixth place in the all-time scoring list as she netted 21 points. For her career Jones now has 1,271 points with seven games left in the season, she needs just 83 points to pass fifth place Melissa Grider (1993-96). Jones led Southern in rebounding as she pulled down seven boards, that gives her 609 for her career just 25 away from breaking into the top five in that career category.

Emporia, Kan. - The Missouri Southern Lions Women’s Basketball team fell 71-61 Wednesday evening to the 16th ranked Emporia State Lady Hornets inside William L. White Auditorium. The 16th ranked Lady Hornets started the game on a 6-2 run before junior Deb Holcomb would bring Southern to the lead with a 5-0 run of her own to give the Lions a 7-6 lead. Back-to-back lay-ups from sophomore Kayla Kivinski gave Southern an 11-9 lead with just over four minutes left in the quarter. From there Emporia State closed the period on an 11-2 run to take a 20-13 lead into the quarter break. Back-to-back lay-ups from seniors Sharese Jones and Kenya Wilson-Brown cut the Lady Hornets lead to three, 20-17, as the second quarter opened. Following a couple of buckets from three point range by the Lady Hornets, a jumper from Jones at the 6:21 mark cut the Emporia State lead down to five at 26-21 and a three from sophomore Jenson Maydew a minute later made it 26-24. Both teams were scoreless until senior Tami Morice drained a three pointer to give the Lions a 27-26 lead with just under three minutes to play in the half. Once again Emporia State would go on a run to close out the quarter, this time a 5-0 run to take a 31-27 lead into the locker room. Jones led the Lions with eight points while Holcomb and Morice tallied five each. Sophomore Dru Clark, Holcomb, and Kivinski led the Lions with two rebounds each as the Lions were out rebounded by Emporia State 15-12 in the first half. The 16th ranked Lady Hornets were led by Kelly Moten with eight points and Kelsey Barnwell added seven. Sandra Ngoie and Kathryn Flott led Emporia State in the first half with three rebounds each. The Lady Hornets started the third quarter right where they left off as they extended the 5-0 run into a 12-0 run before Jones would convert the old fashion three point play to pull the Lions within eight at 38-30. After both teams traded a pair of 4-0 runs Emporia State took a 14 point lead, 50-36, on a pair of free throws from Ngoie with 2:35 left in the quarter. Freshman Desirea Buerge closed out the scoring in the third quarter with a three point play of her own with just over 90 seconds on the clock to put the Lions within 12 at 52-40. ESU opened the fourth quarter with a Flott lay-up and an immediate time out called by Southern. Coming out of the time out Holcomb drained a three to make it 54-43 and back-to-back threes from Maydew and Holcomb a minute later made it 57-49 with 7:07 to play. The eight point deficit was the closest the Lions would get as they cut the Emporia State lead down to eight two more times on lay-ups from Maydew and Wilson-Brown before a 9-0 run by the Lady Hornets over two minutes and 20 seconds of play but ESU up by 17, 70-53, with 1:48 to play. Southern went 7-for-8 in the last minute of play from the free throw line to the Lady Hornets 1-for-2 to provide the final score of 71-61.

Topeka, Kan. - The Missouri Southern Women’s basketball team (15-8, 9-8 MIAA) used a 15-2 run to open the fourth quarter to rally past Washburn (12-10, 8-8 MIAA) 73-67 Saturday evening inside Lee Arena. The first quarter went back and forth for the first three minutes before junior Deb Holcomb hit a three to put the Lions up five at 11-6 with 6:45 left in the period. Washburn answered right back with a three of their own from Haley Pfau and the teams again traded buckets until a layup from Erika Lane gave the Ichabods a 16-15 lead with just over a minute left. A pair of free throws from WU’s Erin Dohnalek put the Ichabods up 18-15 headed into the quarter break. Washburn’s lead expanded to six on another three from Pfau a minute into the second quarter before sophomores Dru Clark hit a layup and Kayla Kivinski sank a free throw to pull the Lions back within three at 21-18 with 7:13 left until halftime. A jumper from senior Sharese Jones followed by a three pointer from sophomore Jenson Maydew gave the game its second tie at 23-23 with 4:35 left before Dohnalek re-gained the lead for Washburn with a three of her own. Washburn went up by four, 31-27, on a free throw from Cindy Demosthene but Kivinski’s lay-up with just under a minute left cut the Lions’ deficit to two heading into the locker room. The second half started with a Holcomb jumper to tie the game at 31-31 but back-to-back lay-ups from Washburn’s Jayna Smith and Alyxis Bowens gave the Ichabods another four point lead before Maydew drained her second three of the night to cut the lead down to one, 35-34, at the 7:28 mark. Another layup from Bowens made it 37-34 before Holcomb tied the game for a fourth time at 37-37 with a three of her own with 6:20 to play. Washburn would lead by five three more times in the third before Jones got in on the long distance party to make it 50-48 Washburn with 1:46 left in the third. Following an Ichabod layup Clark nailed a three to get the Lions with one, 52-51, with 55 seconds left in the quarter. A layup from Bowens made it 54-51 before a technical foul was called on the Lions bench with eight seconds left in the quarter. WU’s Lane would hit only one of the two freebies as Washburn led 55-51 heading into the final quarter. The technical seemed to spark the Lions offense as they used a 16-2 run to start the fourth to take the lead for good at 66-57 on a layup from Jones with 4:35 to play. Washburn cut the lead to four at 67-63 on a three pointer from Lane with 2:46 left to play, but Southern answered right back with a layup of their own from sophomore Bri Shavers to push the lead back to six. Jones and senior Tami Morice sank a pair of free throws each in the game’s final minute to seal the 73-67 road win for Southern.

Joplin, Mo. - The Missouri Southern Lions rally in the second half came just short as fifth ranked Fort Hays State squeaked by with a 68-62 win Saturday afternoon inside The Leggett & Platt Athletic Center. The Lions (16-9, 10-9 MIAA) jumped out first in a first quarter that saw five of the six ties in the game, when junior Deb Holcomb scored on a jumper in the paint on the opening possession. Tie number one came on the first Fort Hays State (21-3, 15-3 MIAA) possession with a layup from Jill Faxon. Tie number two came just a minute later when FHSU’s Chelsea Mason drove to the bucked following a Lions’ layup from freshman Desirea Buerge. The Tigers took the lead on a bucket from Beth Bohuslavsky but Southern regained the lead at 7-6 on the next possession with a three pointer from sophomore Jenson Maydew. A pair of free throws from Fort Hays’ Paige Lunsford tied and then gave the Tigers the lead at 8-7. From there the two teams traded buckets until back-to-back lay-ups from Southern’s Maydew and sophomore Dru Clark made it 13-10 Lions. A lay-up from FHSU’s Taylor Chandler and free throw from Bohuslavsky tied it back at 13-13 before Southern would have a little 5-0 run on a three point play from senior Sharese Jones and a lay-up from Holcomb. Fort Hays State ended the first quarter on a 9-0 run to take a 22-18 lead into the quarter break. Coming out in the second quarter the Tigers pushed their lead up to nine at 27-18 before a three pointer from Clark cut it to six at 27-21 with just under seven minutes to play. A 4-0 run pushed the FHSU lead up to 10, 31-21, before a pair of free throws from Clark and a lay-up from Fort Hays State’s Mason made it 33-23 with four minutes left in the half. Buerge answered with a three off the assist from Clark but the Tigers’ Faxon answered right back with a three of her own to make it 36-26. Southern closed the half on a 6-2 run with a pair of free throws from Clark and Holcomb and a lay-up from sophomore Kayla Kivinski. A quick 4-0 run by Fort Hays State opened the third period before the Lions would start to claw back. A lay-up from senior Kenya Wilson-Brown sparked an 12-2 run to pull Southern even at 44 all following a pair of free throws by Wilson-Brown with 5:46 left in the quarter. That would be the closest the Lions got in the third as FHSU answered with an 8-0 run to go up 52-44 with just over a minute left in the third. Holcomb scored on the next Southern possession and following a turnover by the Tigers’ Mason, Kivinski’s three at the buzzer just missed to the right of the iron. The fourth quarter started with an offensive foul called on Holcomb which the Tigers turned into a lay-up by Taylor Chandler to go back up by eight points, 54-46. Holcomb answered right back with a jumper inside the lane and a pair of free throws from Jones made it 54-50 with just over eight minutes left in the game. Chandler got fouled going to the hoop over 90 seconds later and hit just one of two freebies to give the Lions an opening. Jones immediately came down and hit a three to pull the Lions within two at 55-53 with 6:21 to play. Another trip to the free throw line for FHSU garnered just 1-for-2 this time from Bohuslavsky and a pair of freebies from Nikola Kacperska made it 58-53 with 5:45 to play. A three pointer from Maydew off the assist from Clark cut it down to two before FHSU’s Mason answered right back as the teams headed into the final media time out with FHSU leading 60-56. Coming out of the media Holcomb drove to the bucket for a little 10 foot jump shot to make it 60-58 and that was the closest the Lions would get as Fort Hays finished the game on a 8-4 run for the 68-62 win.

A free throw from UCM’s Ashley Jones with eight seconds on the clock made it 24-15 headed into the quarter break. The Lions pushed their lead to 11 on their first possession of the second quarter when Holcomb hit a jumper in the lane off an offensive rebound by Kivinski.

The win gave the Missouri Southern men a chance to complete the first ever season series sweep of Central Missouri. In the extra period it was all Lions after a pair of freebies from Jones made it 60-59 just a minute and a half into it. The Southern lead got up to seven, 71-64, on a pair of charities from Holcomb with 48 seconds left and another pair of free throws from Jones with 18 seconds left made it 76-71 and gave her a new career high of 31 points.
