COLUMBIA, Mo. - Coming off a 49-point performance against Mississippi, Missouri was looking to find more consistency on the offensive end.

It got just that and a little more Wednesday night. Five Tigers finished in double figures as the Tigers defeated Georgia 79-62 at Mizzou Arena.

Extra hungry after a less than desirable performance Saturday, Missouri felt like it had something to prove.

"We were extremely motivated, especially in practice," Missouri center Alex Oriakhi said about coming off the loss to Mississippi. "I feel we had great practices and we definitely wanted to bounce back."
