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% from the field, their best showing in SEC play this season, and went 11 for 24 on 3-point attempts.

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 2 of 3 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.
