    ATHENS, Ga. -- Trey Thompkins scored 14 of his 21 points in the final nine minutes to help Georgia overcome a 13-point second-half deficit and beat Alabama 76-70 on Saturday.

    The Bulldogs (12-13, 4-8 Southeastern Conference) won their third straight at home to improve to 11-3 this season at Stegeman Coliseum.

    Georgia snapped an 11-game losing streak to SEC Western Division opponents.

    Alabama (14-12, 4-8) has lost five of six, but the Crimson Tide took their biggest lead when Mikhail Torrance's two free throws made it 52-39 with 11:39 remaining.

    Since beating Georgia last year in Tuscaloosa, the Tide had lost five straight and six of eight to the SEC East.

    Thompkins, who finished with a season-high 17 rebounds, banked in a 14-footer with 4:12 left in the game to make it 61-60 and give the Bulldogs their first lead in nearly 13 minutes.
