Southern California vs Georgia

Georgia 64, Southern Cal 56

  •  

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 12 of his 25 points in the first 5 minutes of the second half, John Cannon and Brandon Morris each added 10 points and Georgia beat Southern Cal 64-56 on Saturday.

Omar Oraby finished with 14 points for Southern Cal, which has lost 13 straight on the road.

Caldwell-Pope's jumper on the first possession of the second half made it 29-28 and gave the Bulldogs their first lead of the game. Georgia (4-7) never trailed again.

After beating Mercer by nine points earlier this week, the Bulldogs have won two straight for the first time.

Eric Wise added 12 points for the Trojans (4-8), who have lost seven of eight overall.

Cannon pulled down seven rebounds and Charles Mann handed out six assists for Georgia.

Georgia was 2-for-12 from the field to begin the game, but the Bulldogs shot 61.9 percent in the second half as coach Mark Fox instructed his team to play more physically and get the ball to the rim.

Caldwell-Pope, though, did most of his damage from the perimeter, scoring six of his 10 field goals on jumpers. Regardless of who was defending him, Caldwell-Pope either seemed to have a good look at the basket or he found an open man.

Georgia played mostly man-to-man defense in the second half and occasionally used a full-court press to harass the Trojans into making mistakes or taking bad shots.

Southern Cal finished with only 12 turnovers, but in the second half the Trojans hit only one of eight 3-point attempts and pulled down just three offensive rebounds on missed jumpers.
