Georgia upsets No. 21 Missouri 70-64 in OT

Associated Press  |  Last updated January 08, 2014
Charlie Mann scored 18 points, including the go-ahead basket with 35.8 seconds to go in overtime, and Georgia overcame its free-throw shooting struggles to beat No. 21 Missouri 70-64 in a Southeastern Conference opener on Wednesday night. Nemanja Djurisic had 16 points and hit the tying 3-pointer with 1:39 to go, and Kenny Gaines and Brandon Morris hit a pair of free throws apiece in the final half-minute. The Bulldogs (7-6, 1-0) had lost consecutive road games by double digits at Georgia Washington and Colorado and was a double-digit underdog before ending Missouri's 26-game home winning streak, which had been the longest in the nation. Jabari Brown had 19 points and Earnest Ross added 15 for Missouri (12-1, 1-1). Jordan Clarkson, who missed from the top of the key at the end of regulation, had 12 points. Mann pulled up in the lane before hitting the go-ahead basket less than a half-minute after Brown missed a 3-point attempt. Even with Morris' free throws at the end, Georgia was 13 for 26 at line with Marcus Thornton just 1 for 6. Djurisic was 4 for 5 from 3-point range, matching his career best, after being held to four points his last game. Georgia entered hitting just 65 percent from 3-point range, 12th in the conference. Mann missed a 3-pointer for the lead with 24 seconds left in regulation and Clarkson held the ball before missing a bid to end it with about a second to go. Georgia ended a four-game losing streak against Missouri. Missouri also was vulnerable in its previous game, trailing most of the first half before pulling away to beat Long Beach State by 10 on Saturday. The Tigers had been 4-1 trailing at the half, rallying to beat UCLA and North Carolina State, with the other loss to Illinois. Missouri opened the second half on a 12-4 run and took the lead at 35-34 on another 3-pointer by Ross. Georgia went 7:10 between baskets in the second half. Missouri spotted the Bulldogs eight points to start the game before settling in, and the Tigers got their first lead on a 3-pointer by Ross that made it 20-19 with about 6 minutes remaining. That lasted a half-minute before Djurisic answered with two straight 3s to key an 11-0 run that gave Georgia it's largest lead at 30-20 before Missouri finished the half with five points in a row.
