STARKVILLE, Miss. - Keion Bell scored 24 points, Jabari Brown added 20 and Missouri easily defeated Mississippi State 78-36 on Wednesday night.

Missouri (18-6, 7-4 Southeastern Conference) jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the opening minutes and led 34-10 by halftime. It took Mississippi State (7-16, 2-9) more than nine minutes to score its first basket - a 3-pointer by Colin Borchert - but by that time the game was basically finished.

Missouri won its first road game of the season. Mississippi State's losing streak has reached nine games and spanned more than a month.

Missouri led by as many as 44 points in the second half. The Tigers shot 31 of 58 (53.4 percent) from the field.

Trivante Bloodman led the Bulldogs with 13 points.
