Missouri vs. Georgia: Bulldogs handle unknown opponent easily

Don McPeak-US PRESSWIRE

Georgia coach Andy Landers wasn't sure how the Tigers would attack his team Thursday, but it didn't matter as the Bulldogs came away with the win.

The Georgia women's basketball team wasn't quite sure what to expect from new SEC foe Missouri, but it didn't stop them from grabbing a win.

The Bulldogs cruised to a 77-46 win over the Tigers on Thursday, despite not knowing how Missouri would attack Georgia, writes Cy Brown of The Red & Black:

"We've never played these guys before and I wasn't sure how they were going to try and play us," he said. "It took three, four, five minutes for everyone to get it. They're focusing on (Jasmine) Hassell. They're trying to take Hassell out of the mix."

The win improved Georgia's record to 13-1. It was the team's first win since it lost to Illinois, 70-59, on Dec. 28.

Missouri fell to 11-4 with the loss.

Jasmine James led the way for the Bulldogs in Thursday's win. James scored a game-high 16 points on 8-of-14 shooting from the field. She also had six steals, three assists and two rebounds.

Hassell was limited offensively by the Tigers, scoring just three points. Hassell still came down with a team-high eight rebounds, though.

The Bulldogs will have a big test Sunday. They'll hit the road to play No. 12 Tennessee (10-3) at 1 p.m. ET.
