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.
