Recap: Georgia vs. Miss State

Athens, GA (Sports Network) - Jalen Steele racked up 21 points and seven rebounds, as Mississippi State knocked off SEC foe Georgia, 72-61, in a battle of the Bulldogs at Stegeman Coliseum.

Freshman Craig Sword chipped in with 16 points to help the Bulldogs (7-7, 2-0 SEC) claim their first three-game winning streak of the season.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led Georgia (6-9, 0-2) with 16 points, followed by Charles Mann with 14.

MSU shot a healthy 50 percent from the floor in the first half but needed a late rally to take a 36-35 lead into intermission. Georgia's Tim Dixon capped a 12-0 run with a layup to give the Bulldogs a 30-23 lead with just over five minutes to play in the half. However, MSU closed out the period with a 13-5 spurt to regain the lead.

UGA was held to 30.8-percent shooting over the final 20 minutes, and that included an 0-of-8 effort from the perimeter.

Georgia was never able to get anything going offensively, as the Bulldogs were held to 32-percent shooting for the game and committed 15 turnovers.
