KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jeremy Price scored 20 points as Georgia
beat Tennessee 69-63 on Saturday for its first win in Knoxville in
10 seasons.

After Georgia (18-8, 7-5 Southeastern Conference) led by 15
points in the first half, the Volunteers cut the margin to 63-61
with 42 seconds left after Scotty Hopson pulled in a rebound off a
missed free throw by Dustin Ware, drove to the 3-point line before
hesitating and then drove all the way to the basket for an
uncontested dunk.

Ware would be fouled twice more in the remaining time, and he
hit all four of his free throws to seal the win. Price finished off
the game with an icing dunk with 14 seconds left.

Tobias Harris hit one more banking layup for the Vols (16-11,
6-6) in between Ware's trips to the line, but it was their last
basket as Hopson, who led the team with a career-high 32 points,
later missed a 3.
