ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Charles Mann scored 18 points and Kenny Gaines added 17 to help Georgia beat Clemson 71-48 on Tuesday night.

It was Georgia's third consecutive victory and its second straight against an Atlantic Coast Conference foe as the Bulldogs defeated Georgia Tech 75-61 on Saturday. It was the first time Georgia won consecutive games against the ACC since December 2000, when the Bulldogs defeated Georgia Tech and NC State.

After trailing 13-5 in the first half, Georgia (6-3) went on a 29-7 run that saw Clemson (7-5) suffer a pair of three-minute scoring droughts. The Tigers shot 27 percent from the field while the Bulldogs were successful on 52 percent of their attempts.

The 48 points scored by Clemson represented the Tigers' lowest output of the season. Previously, the Tigers' worst offensive outing came last Friday in a 65-59 loss to South Carolina.
