The Georgia Bulldogs gave the Missouri Tigers their worst beating of this college basketball season on Tuesday night in Athens, Georgia. 71-56 was the final, but the Bulldogs led by twenty points at several times during the game.

Georgia’s Nemanja’s Djurisic’s  long three pointer beat the first half buzzer and gave the Bulldogs a 31-22 half time lead. It didn’t improve in the second half for Mizzou as the deficit grew. Jabari Brown and Jordan Clarkson scored 17 points each to lead the Tigers in scoring.

The loss, Mizzou’s second this season to Georgia, drops their season record to 19-9 overall and now just 7-8 in SEC play.
