GEORGIA 78, TENNESSEE 68

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 25 points and
Georgia recovered after losing an 11-point lead to beat
Tennessee 78-68 on Saturday, ending the Vols' six-game winning
streak.



Tennessee (17-11, 9-7 Southeastern Conference) suffered its
first loss since losing to the Bulldogs 68-62 in Knoxville on
Feb. 6. Jordan McRae set career highs with eight 3-pointers and
35 points to lead the Vols before fouling out with about 1
minute remaining.



The Vols, who moved into NCAA tournament consideration with
their longest winning streak of the season, were denied their
first streak of seven straight SEC wins since the 2008 season.
Kenny Hall had 10 points but no other Tennessee player scored in
double figures.



Charles Mann added 18 points for Georgia (14-15, 8-8), which
took its first regular-season sweep of the Vols since 2001.
Mann made 12 of 14 free throws. Georgia made 22 of 26 attempts
overall.



Georgia, which led by 17 in the first half before losing 63-62
at Vanderbilt on Wednesday night, couldn't hold another big
first-half lead against the Vols.



The Bulldogs led the Vols by 11 at 25-14 late in the first half.
The Vols rallied to lead 41-40 on McRae's sixth 3-pointer about
eight minutes into the second half.



This time Georgia recovered. Freshman Kenny Gaines, who returned
after missing one game with a heel injury, hit a 3-pointer with
5:20 remaining to give Georgia a 53-45 advantage. Gaines' added
another 3 with 2:56 remaining to push the lead to 12 points.



Tennessee tried to rally behind McRae, who sank two 3-pointers
in the final 2:30. McRae sank two free throws with 1:10
remaining to cut Georgia's lead to 69-62. After Mann answered
with two free throws, McRae fouled out with 1:02 remaining.



McRae, who averaged 28 points in his last three games, continued
his hot streak. He had 27 points in the Vols' 64-58 win over No.
8 Florida on Tuesday night. His previous highs of six 3-pointers
and 34 points came in an 82-72 win over LSU on Feb. 19.



Georgia had five turnovers before it scored its first points.
The Vols led 7-0 but couldn't take full advantage of Georgia's
string of giveaways. The Bulldogs finished with only nine
turnovers for the game.



Caldwell-Pope led a quick Georgia recovery, hitting a 3-pointer
before stealing the ball from Trae Golden to set up Charles
Mann's fast-break basket for a 7-7 tie.



A 3-pointer by Sherrard Brantley gave the Bulldogs a 25-14 lead.
Tennessee closed the half with eight unanswered points to trail
25-22 at halftime. McRae closed the half with a 3-pointer and
three-point play, giving the junior from Midway, Ga., 14 of the
Vols' 22 points in the half.
