Senior Anthony Perez scored 19 points and grabbed 9 rebounds for the Rebels, but Ole Miss fell 80-66 on the road at the Georgia Bulldogs Saturday.

Senior forward Tomasz Gielo had 13 points for Ole Miss (18-11, 8-8 SEC) for his eighth straight game scoring in double figures.

Georgia’s J.J. Frazier scored 26 points and Kenny Gaines had 23 while leading the defensive effort on Stefan Moody. Frazier and Gaines combined to make 10 of 18 3-pointers.

Three early 3-pointers from Gaines helped Georgia (15-12, 8-8 SEC) lead 25-13. The Rebels charged back with a 16-2 run that included 13 unanswered points for a 29-27 lead. The Bulldogs missed seven straight shots before recovering with 3s from Gaines and Frazier for a 33-32 halftime lead.

Moody, defended closely by Gaines and unable to break out in the first half, launched back-to-back 3-pointers to get on track early in the second half. Another 3-pointer from Martavious Newby gave the Rebels their big lead at 49-41.

Georgia answered with an 11-0 run for a 52-51 lead.

A 3-pointer by Rasheed Brooks cut the Georgia lead to 60-58 before Frazier’s 3-pointer capped seven straight points for a 67-58 advantage.
