COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Freshman Rickea Jackson had season-high 21 points and nine rebounds, Jordan Danberry added 18 points and four steals, and No. 13 Mississippi State beat Missouri 79-64 on Thursday night.

Mississippi State scored 26 points off 23 Tigers turnovers and outscored them in the paint 46-26.
