AUBURN, Ala. -- Lucas Hargrove matched his season-high with 24 points and had 11 rebounds to lead Auburn to an 82-63 victory over Georgia on Wednesday night.
The Tigers (12-12, 3-6 Southeastern Conference) ran away with the matchup of two of the three SEC teams who entered the week with losing records. Both teams had lost six of their last eight games.
But the Bulldogs came out sloppy and piled up 19 turnovers, while Auburn committed just nine. Auburn's first two SEC wins had come by a total of five points, while the Bulldogs (10-12, 2-7) suffered their worst SEC loss this season.
They shot just 37 percent (19 of 52).
