The Missouri volleyball team was swept by Georgia on Wednesday in a Southeastern Conference match in Athens, Ga.

Despite Missouri outside hitter Lisa Henning hitting a match-high 15 kills and sophomore middle hitter Whitney Little having eight blocks, the Tigers fell 25-18, 25-23, 25-13.

Missouri played well at the beginning of the second set, but the serving of Georgia libero Allison Summers gave the Bulldogs an 8-5 lead which they turned into a tight victory.

Missouri is now 15-7 overall and 7-5 in the SEC. Georgia improved to 13-8 and 7-4 in the conference.

Missouri plays next against Arkansas (16-6) at 1:30 p.m. Sunday at Barnhill Arena in Fayetteville, Ark.
