No. 17 Georgia loses cool, game

The Associated Press

        AUBURN, Ala. — Georgia lost its temper, then lost the game. Marquis Daniels made five free throws late, including two with 3.5 seconds left to clinch Auburn's 75-62 victory over the No.17 Bulldogs Saturday.

        Georgia (7-4 Southeastern Conference) came unraveled late as Auburn ended a six-game losing streak.

        With 2:01 left, Auburn's Kyle Davis and Georgia's Steve Thomas were ejected for fighting after Adam Harrington's 3-pointer had brought the Tigers to a 60-60 tie. The SEC suspended both players for one game.

        Derrick Bird then sank a runner in the lane to give Auburn (2-8) a 62-60 lead with 53 seconds left. Tempers flared again on the next possession when Georgia's Chris Daniels was called for a foul away from the ball after knocking Brandon Robinson to the floor.

        “They were getting a little frustrated,” said Robinson. “We got in their head. We came out playing hard, and they didn't like it.”

        Georgia coach Jim Harrick erupted, receiving first a technical then an ejection.

        Bird hit three of four free throws for the technicals and Robinson added two more for a 67-60 lead with 46 seconds left.
