The Bulldogs extended their 39-30 halftime lead to 69-54 on Andrew Garcia's layup with 10:44 left before Auburn (10-9, 4-6) began chipping away.

Georgia built a 10-2 lead and never trailed.

P.J. Horne and Wheeler each scored 13 points, K.D. Johnson had 12 and Justin Kier 11 for the Bulldogs.

Jaylin Williams led Auburn with 21 point on 9-of-14 shooting, Cooper scored 19, Jamal Johnson 13 and Allen Flanigan 12.
