Southern Miss vs. Georgia final score: Bulldogs comeback falls short in overtime

Chris Graythen

After trailing for most of the game, Georgia forces overtime against Southern Miss, but loses, 62-60.

The Southern Miss. Golden Eagles survived a comeback from the Georgia Bulldogs, topping the Bulldogs, 62-60, in overtime from Stegeman Coliseum on Thursday night.

Georgia, despite 17 points and six rebounds from guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, was unable to top the Golden Eagles and dropped their second straight game to fall to 1-2 in the early goings of the 2012-13 season.

After Georgia guard Vincent Williams hit a three-pointer to open the scoring in the game, the Bulldogs fell behind early in the first half, and would never regain the lead in regulation after their early 3-0 advantage. Georgia fell behind by as many as 11 points as every Golden Eagle who saw playing time on Thursday scored at least two points.

The Bulldogs made a late run to bring the game back within two points late in the second half. The Golden Eagles looked like they were about to pull away before the Bulldogs went on a late run to tie the game and force overtime.

Georgia finally gained a lead in the overtime period, but the Golden Eagles were able to do just enough, as Dwayne Davis and Jerrold Brooks provided the offense Southern Miss needed to claim the victory in overtime.
