ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Kenny Gaines scored all of his 14 points in the second half, Brandon Morris and Charles Mann each added 10 points and Georgia beat Texas A&M 62-50 on Saturday night.
Georgia (12-10, 6-4 Southeastern Conference) has won two straight after ending a three-game skid in Thursday's victory over LSU.
Mann, the Bulldogs' leading scorer this season, was just 3 for 8 from the field, but his fastbreak dunk, following a steal by Morris, made it 56-48 with 1:55 left in the game.
Jamal Jones finished with 17 points and was the only player to score in double figures for Texas A&M (13-10, 4-6 SEC). The Aggies have lost six of seven.
Georgia sixth man Nemanja Djurisic, the Bulldogs' second-leading scorer this season, hobbled off the court with 1:42 remaining with an apparent right leg injury.
Georgia's next game is Wednesday at Mississippi State.
