For the Georgia Bulldogs, it was the largest margin of victory in a SEC game under coach Mark Fox. For the Missouri Tigers, another bad road loss in a dreadful season. 68-44 was the final
Mizzou, now (8-21, 2-14), held a 3-2 lead, on a Namon Wright three-pointer, but they couldn’t build any momentum in looking for a second straight win after the Florida 64-52 win on Tuesday night. The Tigers, last in the SEC, trailed by double figures most of the game.
Mizzou made only 14 of 49 shots from the field (28.6 percent). The second worse this season behind the 86-37 loss at Kentucky in which it made only 27.1 percent of its shots (16 of 59).
“To their credit, (Georgia) came out today ready to play and it’s frustrating,” Mizzou head coach Kim Anderson said. “In the first half especially, our front line really struggled to score. You can’t do that.”
Georgia led 41-23 at halftime and stretched the lead to 28 points at 55-27. The Tigers were outrebounded 47-30.
