Georgia Beats Mississippi; Advances In SEC Tourney

ATLANTA (AP) — Charles Mann scored 16 points, including a go-ahead basket with 17 seconds remaining, and Georgia edged Mississippi 75-73 in the Southeastern Conference tournament quarterfinals on Friday night.

Marshall Henderson scored 19 points for Ole Miss but made only 5 of 21 shots, including 2 of 16 3-pointers. Jarvis Summers led the Rebels with 26 points but missed a last-second jumper.

Georgia (19-12) will play Kentucky in the second SEC semifinal game on Saturday, following No. 1 Florida’s game against Tennessee.

Kenny Gaines and Brandon Morris each had 12 points for the Bulldogs, who may need to win the SEC tournament to earn a spot in the NCAA field. J.J. Frazier added 11 points.

There were 51 fouls called in the game. Sebastian Saiz and Dwight Coleby fouled out for Ole Miss (19-14).
