Mississippi State looked primed to end a season-long five-game losing streak early in the first half, then the Georgia Bulldogs came to life.
MSU let a 14-point first-half lead slip away as it fell to the visiting Bulldogs 75-55 Wednesday night in front of a sparse crowd at Humphrey Coliseum. The announced attendance was 7,010.
MSU used 10-0 and 12-0 runs in the early going of the game to build a 22-8 lead.
UGA struggled offensively during that stretch and made just two field goals. The Peach State Bulldogs finally found their shot and made six in the final 10 minutes of the opening half, as they closed out the half on a 20-5 run to take a 28-27 lead into the locker room at halftime.
