ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Marcus Thornton scored 30 points, Tasmin Mitchell added 27 and LSU won its sixth straight Southeastern Conference game, routing Georgia 80-62 on Wednesday night.
Thornton, the SEC's fourth-leading scorer coming into the contest, has reached at least 30 points in three of his last five games. Mitchell made a run at his career high of 30 points in a win over South Carolina last month.
LSU (18-4, 6-1) hasn't lost in the conference since a 65-59 setback at Alabama on Jan. 11. Then there's Georgia (9-13, 0-7), which hasn't won a game in 2009; the Bulldogs' last victory came on New Year's Eve against Kennesaw State.
Terrance Woodbury led Georgia with 22 points.
