The Texas Aggie basketball team continued to struggle on the offensive end of the court on Saturday, and the team dropped a disappointing 59-52 contest to the Georgia Bulldogs. The loss was the squad's fourth straight since a surprising 2-0 start in SEC play.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP)-Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 22 points to lead Georgia to a 59-52 win over slumping Texas A&M on Saturday in the first-ever meeting between these new Southeastern Conference foes.

Sherrard Brantley had two 3-pointers during a 16-2 run by the Bulldogs to start the second half, giving Georgia its biggest lead.

The Bulldogs had to fight off a late rally by Texas A&M for the victory. Texas A&M cut it to three points with a minute left on a lay-up by Kourtney Roberson, but the Bulldogs scored the last four points of the game to secure the win.

Georgia (8-11, 2-4 SEC) got back on track after a loss to No. 8 Florida. The Aggies extended their losing streak to a season-long four games.

Elston Turner's 19 points led Texas A&M (12-7, 2-4). Recommended Stories
