    STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- Jamont Gordon had 15 points to lead Mississippi State to a 60-49 victory Saturday over Georgia.

    Mississippi State (11-5, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) extended its season-high winning streak to six games and improved to 2-0 in the conference. Mississippi State has won all six contests by at 11 points and have not lost at home since Dec. 13.

    Georgia (9-5, 0-1) took an early 28-27 lead in the second half, but didn't hold it.

    A 3-pointer by Ben Hansbrough started an 18-2 run that would eat 10 minutes off the clock and put Mississippi State up by a comfortable 45-30 margin.

    Georgia responded with its own 9-0 run late in the half, but a 3-pointer by Mississippi State's Riley Benock ended the run.

    Sundiata Gaines led Georgia with 15 points.

    Mississippi State opened the game on a 9-2 clip, but could not sustain any momentum in a first half dominated by defensive stops and missed opportunities.

    Mississippi State had nine blocked shots in the opening period, and the teams combined to shoot 2-for-17 from beyond the arc. Mississippi State led 27-24 at the half.
