ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 20 points and pulled down 10 rebounds to help Georgia beat Auburn 57-49 on Wednesday night.
The Bulldogs (9-11, 3-4 Southeastern Conference) have won three of four.
Frankie Sullivan and Allen Payne each finished with 13 points for Auburn (8-12, 2-5). The Tigers, who have dropped five straight, matched their season-low in points and shot a season-worst 28.3 percent.
Caldwell-Pope, Georgia's leading scorer in 18 of 20 games this season, gave the Bulldogs a four-point lead with a putback at the 1:09 mark and followed with two free throws to make it 53-47 with 31 seconds left.
Georgia began the game ranked No. 325 in the nation in scoring, but Auburn was the team that struggled all night offensively.
Sullivan, the SEC's third-leading scorer, didn't produce a point until the 8:45 mark of the first half.
