COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - 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.

Georgia head coach Mark Fox was in tears as the game ended. His father passed away earlier this week.
