Missouri women knock off No. 14 S. Carolina 65-58

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Bri Kulas had 26 points and 12 rebounds as Missouri knocked off No. 14 South Carolina 65-58 Thursday night.

Sydney Crafton added 11 points and Liene Priede had 10 for the Tigers (16-13, 5-10 Southeastern), who are 14-4 at home this season with wins over two ranked opponents (the other an 80-63 win over then-No. 9 Tennessee on Feb. 3).

Ieasia Walker and Khadijah Sessions led South Carolina (22-6, 10-5) with 14 points apiece.

Missouri, which has made a school-record 240 3-pointers this season, beat the Gamecocks the old-fashioned way - by pounding the ball inside. The Tigers outscored South Carolina 34-14 on points in the paint and attempted just seven 3-pointers, making three.

Missouri shot 53.5% and never trailed in a game that was close throughout. Its biggest lead was eight points when Kulas converted a 3-point play with 52 seconds remaining.
