The Warrensburg Lady Tigers won their home opener Tuesday night 54-37 over Excelsior Springs.
Five players scored seven or more points as the Lady Tigers improved to 1-3 after dropping their first three games in the Marshall Shootout.
Jessica Tiller paced Warrensburg with 13 points and Taylor Geis added 12. The Lady Tigers went on a 10-0 run the last 3:55 of the second quarter to take a 28-19 lead and maintained the advantage from that point forward.
The Lady Tigers go on the road Friday to play at Nevada.
