Georgia scored just eight points in the last 12 minutes of the game. But Crean said offense wasn’t the only problem.
“I don’t think we stayed urgent enough on the defensive end,” Crean said.
Edwards played every minute of the game, finishing with 23 points. Tyree Crump and Toumani Camara scored 13 and 12, respectively, for the Bulldogs.
Missouri, which ended a four-game losing streak, ran into foul trouble early, finishing the first half with 12. Mitchell Smith and Nikko both finished the game with four.
The Tigers held Georgia’s leading rebounder, Rayshaun Hammonds, to one. Hammonds had averaged 8.1 rebounds per game prior to facing Missouri.
The Bulldogs will continue their SEC play against Texas A&M on Saturday at home.
