Georgia holds off South Carolina 74-62 at SEC Tournament

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Georgia Bulldogs already had lost twice to South Carolina this season. They refused to add a third to that list.

Yante Maten scored six straight points down the stretch putting Georgia ahead to stay, and the third-seeded Bulldogs beat South Carolina 74-62 Friday night in the Southeastern Conference Tournament quarterfinals.

The last team to play thanks to a double bye, the Bulldogs (21-10) joined No. 21 Arkansas in avoiding the upset bug here. Not that it was easy against the Gamecocks who erased a 12-point Georgia lead in the second half. The Bulldogs put them away by finishing on a 17-5 run.
