Don't call it an upset: Missouri State Lady Bears control No. 24 Virginia Tech in win

On paper, an unranked Lady Bears win over a ranked team would have looked like an upset. Anyone who watched the game on Friday morning knew who the better team was.

Missouri State (4-1) has put together two straight dominant victories over solid programs with its 76-68 victory over No. 24 Virginia Tech (5-1) in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The Lady Bears will conclude their Puerto Rico trip on Saturday morning with an 11:15 game against LSU — which is led by legendary head coach Kim Mulkey.

A dominant first quarter set the tone for the Lady Bears and they maintained that level of play throughout the morning.
