LSU 50, Georgia 48

Bo Spencer’s off-balance jumper with 19 seconds left helped LSU

close out its regular season with only its second Southeastern

Conference victory of the season, 50-48 over Georgia on

Saturday.

Tasmin Mitchell scored 20 points and Spencer finished with 10

for LSU (11-19, 2-14), which won despite shooting only 31 percent

(18-for-58) and being outrebounded 39-34.

Trey Thompkins scored 19 points and grabbed 16 rebounds for

Georgia (13-16, 5-11), which had a chance to tie in the final

seconds. Jeremy Price’s turnaround jumper from the top of the key

rattled out in the final seconds. Thompkins hustled inside for an

offensive rebound and appeared to attempt a putback as time ran

out, but it rattled out as well, allowing the Tigers to hold

on.
