BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Theresa Plaisance scored 20 points and Jeanne Kenney added 19 to lead No. 16 LSU past Missouri 75-58 Thursday night.

Lianna Doty found Kayla McDowell for a layup with 15:57 to play, pulling Missouri within six, 46-40. LSU (18-5, 7-3 SEC) responded with a 14-0 run which opened up a 20-point lead for LSU.

Missouri (14-9, 3-7) responded immediately, scoring the game's next 12 points to trim its deficit to eight, 60-52, with 6:35 remaining.

A jumper by Plaisance with just fewer than 6 minutes left pushed the LSU lead back to 10 and Missouri never got within single digits again as LSU made 11 of 12 free throws in the final 2:24.

Plaisance added nine rebounds and three blocked shots while Raigyne Moncrief finished with 15 points and four steals.

Brianna Kulas paced Missouri with 23 points. Morgan Eye finished with 12.
