ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 17 points and Charles Mann added 10 to help Georgia snap a three-game losing streak with a 58-49 victory over Mercer on Tuesday.
The game began at 11:30 a.m. to accommodate approximately 4,000 students from nearby elementary schools.
Georgia (3-7) took a 10-point lead, its biggest of the game, on Mann's putback dunk with 3:24 remaining.
Nobody scored in double figures for Mercer (6-6). The Bears, who had won two straight and three of four, were led by Anthony White Jr.'s nine points and Daniel Coursey's eight.
Caldwell-Pope finished one rebound shy of his third straight double-double.
Langston Hall's runner with 4:32 remaining cut Georgia's lead to four, but Mercer never got any closer.
