COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Brianna Kulas scored 24 points and gathered 13 rebounds to lead Missouri in a mild upset of No. 25 Georgia 66-56 on Thursday night.

The teams had the same number of field goals for the game, but Missouri (13-3, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) hit two more 3-pointers and eight more free throws than Georgia (12-4, 0-3).

Kayla McDowell added 13 points for the Tigers, as they rebounded from a loss to Arkansas earlier in the week.

Georgia was led by Khaalidah Miller's 12 points, while Krista Donald added 11.

The Lady Bulldogs have lost three in a row and four of their last five.

Missouri then outscored Georgia 33-21 in the second half.
