Georgia 93, Wofford 89 (OT)

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Sundiata Gaines scored six of his 18 points in overtime to lead Georgia to a 93-89 win over Wofford on Sunday. Before fouling out in overtime, Channing Toney led Georgia (4-3) with 24 points, including a 3-pointer with 7.2 seconds remaining in regulation to force overtime. Levi Stukes scored 21 for the Bulldogs. Wofford (7-3), which earlier this year defeated Auburn, another Southeastern Conference team, was led by Howard Wilkerson with a season-high 28 points. The Terriers missed 16 free throws, including six in the last 44 seconds of regulation when they could have put the game away. Leading 82-76 after a short Wilkerson jumper, the Terriers fouled Stukes on a 3-point attempt. He converted all three shots. Georgia then sent Eric Marshall to the line, a 79-percent shooter so far this year. He missed both shots, but Stukes traveled with the rebound as he fell to the floor, calling for a time out while he lay on his back. Twice more Georgia fouled Adrien Borders, and both times he hit the second shot. After the first one, Gaines went coast-to-coast for a layup with 16.1 seconds to go, and after the second Borders make, Toney hit his 3-pointer. Borders managed to get off a running jumper before time expired, but it missed.
