In a monotonous game of fouls, free throws, and backdoor jams, Georgia kept USC winless in the SEC with a 97-76 win Wednesday night at Stegeman Coliseum in Athens.
The Gamecocks drop their fifth in a row to fall to 7-11 and 0-5 in the SEC. Georgia improves to 4-1 in league play and 10-7 overall.

Sindarius Thornwell led the Gamecocks with a career high 26 points.
Nemanja Djurisic led Georgia with a career high 22 and with perfect 6-6 from the floor including three three pointers.
