COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Keion Bell scored 24 points and Jabari Brown added 23 to lead Missouri to a 90-68 win over South Carolina on Thursday night.

After shooting 67% (16 of 24) in the first half, the Tigers (20-8, 9-6 Southeastern Conference) made 12 of their first 13 shots from the field in the second half to go on a 31-13 run that ballooned a 7-point halftime lead into a 76-51 margin.

Missouri shot 69.6% (32 of 46) for the game, and plenty of those baskets were easy. The Tigers had 10 dunks and 46 points in the paint to pick up just their second win on the road this season.

Damien Leonard came off the bench to lead South Carolina (13-15, 3-12) with 20 points. The Gamecocks have lost 7 of their last eight games.
