COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Morgan Eye scored 26 points and Bri Kulas added 20, and Missouri upset No. 9 Tennessee 80-63 on Sunday for its first win over a ranked team in almost two years.
The Tigers (15-8, 4-5 Southeastern Conference) shot 52.7 percent from the field, their best showing in SEC play this season, and went 11-for-24 on 3-pointers.
Kamiko Williams scored 14 points to lead the Lady Vols (17-5, 8-1 SEC) before leaving with 16:59 left with an apparent leg injury. Tennessee has lost two of three and had its 12-game winning streak in the SEC snapped.
The Tigers' last victory over a ranked team came March 5, 2011, against No. 23 Iowa State. The last time they beat a top-10 team was Jan. 23, 2010, when they beat No. 10 Baylor 70-62.
