Lady Tigers Pingeton loves her Strafford freshman

Sports

SPRINGFIELD, Mo–Robin Pingeton and Mizzou women’s hoops just made their fourth straight NCAA tournament appearance.

All-American Sophie Cunningham graduated, and she’s with the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury.

Pingeton may have another star-in-the making from the Show-Me State.

She’s already impressed by freshman Hayley Frank, the 4-time state champ from Strafford.

“Well I can talk about Hayley for a long time.  Golly, as good as advertised for sure.  She’s going to be a special, special player for us.  There’s always that little bit of a learning curve, the physicality of the game, pace of the game.  Just the intensity of it.  And she’s just stepped right in and has been phenomenal for us,” said Pingeton.
