ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Jordan Danberry and Rickea Jackson scored 17 points each and No. 15 Mississippi State beat Georgia 73-66 on Sunday to extend the nation's longest road win streak to 13.
Eleven of Danberry's points came in the fourth quarter, including six in a 8-0 run to start the period to give MSU (14-2, 2-0 SEC) some breathing room at 56-47. Three of the baskets came after consecutive turnovers by Georgia (10-5, 1-1) which finished 23 miscues.
The victory was the sixth straight for MSU.
Georgia got within four points three times in the fourth quarter, the final time at 66-62 on Jenna Staiti's layup with just over two minutes left. But Danberry made three free throws and Jackson two in the final 38 seconds.
A bucket by Danberry with three minutes left in the third period gave MSU the lead for good. MSU led for over 34 minutes of the game but only once by double figures — 10 points with 3:10 remaining.
Wiggins and Jessika Carter scored 13 points each for MSU.
Stephanie Paul had 15 points and nine rebounds for Georgia. Que Morrison added 14 points and Gabby Connally 11 for the Lady Bulldogs, who shot 51%.
