Georgia upsets Missouri (20) thanks to Toumani Camara.
After a big loss against N.11 Alabama, Georgia needed to react. And despite Missouri being up 48-35, Georgia fought hard to win the game (80-70).
Toumani Camara recorded 15 points, a team-high 8 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks.
It’s the first win of the season for Georgia against a ranked team.
“I think the way we came back and got the momentum, the fact that we did it against such a good team, the fact that some guys were really on the attack, like Justin, K.D., Sahvir, Andrew, those things can only hopefully help us,” said head coach Tom Crean after the game.
“We make sure we focus on every moment and every little detail to stay focused at any point in time. On the free throw line, it’s something that I really try to focus on with those details, and it’s just our desperation. We just lost two games and we’re hungry, and I feel like that’s something that we have to have even if we win games. We just have to be able to want this game more than the other team, and it’s really important for us to keep that mentality.”, said Toumani Camara after the game.
Georgia will now play against Florida on Saturday.
