Athens, GA (Sports Network) - Nemanja Djurisic scored 13 points off the bench for Georgia as the Bulldogs pulled out the 52-46 win over the Texas A&M Aggies in SEC action at Stegeman Coliseum.

Also scoring in double figures for the Bulldogs (12-11, 6-4 SEC) was Kentavious Caldwell-Pope who tallied 10 points on a perfect 10-of-10 showing at the free-throw line as the team picked up a fifth straight win.

The Aggies (14-9, 4-6), losers of two of the last three, were paced by Fabyon Harris with a game-high 17 points, followed by Elston Turner with 13, although the latter shot just 2-of-14 from the floor on the day. Kourtney Roberson cleared a game-high 12 rebounds.
