ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Kenny Gaines scored 21 points and Charles Mann hit the go-ahead free throw with 1.5 seconds remaining, lifting Georgia past Mississippi 61-60 on Saturday in a battle for third place in the Southeastern Conference.
After a three-point play by Jarvis Summers of Ole Miss tied the game at 60-all, Mann dribbled most of the final 30 seconds down before driving and cutting, drawing a foul from Ole Miss freshman Dwight Coleby. Mann missed the first free throw but made the second for the one-point lead.
Ole Miss couldn't complete a desperation full-court pass as the game ended.
Gaines had nine points in a 13-0 run midway through the second half that gave Georgia its first lead since early in the game. Mann had 17 points for Georgia (14-10, 8-4 SEC), which took its fourth straight win. Ole Miss (16-9, 7-5) has lost two straight, both on the road.
