TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The No. 23 Florida State women’s basketball team answered its first two-game losing streak in two years by rattling off back-to-back wins over Florida and Stetson.
Now, the Seminoles (11-3) head to Columbia, Mo. to take on Missouri (8-4) Sunday at 3 p.m. ET at Mizzou Arena. Fans can follow along with the radio broadcast on 100.7 FM in Tallahassee and on Seminoles.com. Gametracker is also available.
FSU senior point guard Courtney Ward heads north just eight tallies shy of her 1,000th career point. If she accomplishes the feat on Sunday, she will become the 24th player in FSU history to register that many points in a career.
