Following its loss to Ole Miss last Saturday, the Missouri Tigers got back on track with a 79-62 victory over Georgia. The win improves Missouri to 13-3 on the season.
Missouri is still without leading scorer Laurence Bowers, who has missed the team's last two games with a sprained MCL. The first of those games was a 64-49 loss to Ole Miss.
The Tigers jumped out to a 38-30 halftime lead in this one and never looked back. Part of the reason for that was a defense that forced Georgia into 18 turnovers.
The loss is yet another disappointing result for Georgia, who now drop to 6-10 on the season. One of the lone positives in defeat was 23 points by Vincent Williams off the Georgia bench.
Missouri will have a much tougher test on Saturday when it will be on the road against Florida.
