Charles Mann scored 19 points, Juwan Parker added 16 and Georgia overcame a slow start to beat Mississippi State 75-55 on Wednesday night.
Georgia trailed 22-8 midway through the first half and needed more than six minutes to make its first field goal.
But the momentum swung quickly. Georgia rallied for a 28-27 halftime lead and stretched its advantage to as many as 23 points late in the second half. Marcus Thornton added nine points and eight rebounds.
Georgia (13-10, 7-4 Southeastern Conference) is now tied with Mississippi for third place in the league. The Bulldogs meet the Rebels on Saturday in Athens, Ga.
Mississippi State (13-11, 3-8) has lost six straight. It was a miserable shooting night for MSU, which made just 3 of 25 attempts (12 percent) from 3-point range. Craig Sword led Mississippi State with 10 points.
BEST OF MAXIM
