UMSL Tritons weekly roundup for Jan. 3-Jan. 9

UMSL junior Devonna Smith drives to the hoop in women's basketball action last week.

Each week, the Department of Athletics at the University of Missouri–St. Louis compiles a roundup of how the various UMSL Tritons teams have fared. Click on the headings below for an up-to-date look at each Tritons team.

UMSL moved its win streak to nine games, while also remaining perfect in Great Lakes Valley Conference play with wins over the University of Wisconsin–Parkside (Kenosha) (79-71) and Lewis University (Romeoville, Ill.) (70-61) last weekend in its league home openers. Senior Troy Long averaged 20 points in the two contests as UMSL improved to 10-3 overall, including 5-0 in the GLVC. The Tritons’ nine-game win streak is the second longest in program history and the longest since the 1971-72 team won a school-best 13 games in a row. The 5-0 GLVC start also marks a program first, while its 10-3 start is the best since the 1990-91 team also went 10-3 through 13 games.

The UMSL women’s basketball team lost a 69-43 decision to No. 17 ranked University of Wisconsin-Parkside last Thursday in its GLVC home opener, but bounced back to garner a 66-49 win over Lewis University on Saturday for its first league win of the year. Senior Caitlyn Moody averaged 14.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.5 steals per game in the two games. UMSL is now 6-6 overall, including a 1-3 mark in the GLVC.
