STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 20 points, including a crucial 3-pointer late in overtime, and Georgia beat No. 20 Mississippi State 70-68 on Saturday.

Georgia (12-12, 3-7) earned its first Southeastern Conference road win this season and only its second road victory overall. Gerald Robinson Jr. added 13 points, including eight in overtime. Dustin Ware had 11.

Mississippi State (19-6, 6-4) was led by Dee Bost’s 21 points. The senior guard missed a jumper at the buzzer that could have tied it.

Georgia trailed for much of the game, but Robinson hit a driving layup with 27 seconds remaining that sent the game to overtime. Georgia won at Humphrey Coliseum for the first time since 2002.
