    ATHENS, Ga. -- Troy Brewer came off the bench to score a career-high 15 points in leading Georgia to a 72-52 win over in-state foe Kennesaw State.

    Three post players scored in double figures for Georgia (9-4). Trey Thompkins scored 14, Jeremy Price 13 and Albert Jackson 12. Jackson added 10 rebounds and four blocked shots.

    Spencer Dixon scored 16 points to lead Kennesaw State (5-6), which lost its fourth straight game.

    The Owls were 9-for-36 in the first half as Georgia took a 34-22 halftime lead. Brewer hit a pair of 3s en route to nine points by intermission.

    Georgia led 40-24 early in the second half, but the Owls crept back into the game, led by guard Spencer Dixon, who scored 13 points in under four minutes. Kennesaw State pulled within 55-46 with 9:05 left, but a steal and a layup by Dustin Ware and a 3-pointer by Thompkins ended any upset momentum.
