Leslie finished with 17 points, six rebounds, and four assists for the Bulldogs while Robinson finished with 17 points, five rebounds, five assists, and three steals for the Bulldogs. Trey Thompkins added 15 points and seven rebounds. Jeremy Price scored 11 points and grabbed five rebounds in the game. Sherrard Brantley came off the bench to bury three 3-point shots while scoring nine points. 

Junior guard Dee Bost led Mississippi State with 20 points and Renardo Sidney scored 15 points and grabbed nine rebounds before fouling out late. 

Georgia is now 14-4 overall and 3-2 in the SEC. The win puts the Bulldogs just a half a game behind the Florida Gators for the top spot in the SEC's Eastern division. The Gators will visit Athens on Tuesday. 

Mississippi State drops to 10-8 overall and 2-2 in the SEC West.
