USC Vs. Georgia Game Score: Trojans, Bulldogs Tied 25-25 At Halftime

Maurice Jones scored six points and dished out three assists, and his jumper with 33 seconds remaining in the first half sent the USC Trojans into halftime tied 25-25 with the Georgia Bulldogs Saturday night at Galen Center. USC is looking to snap a two-game losing streak, while the Bulldogs seek to snap a four-game skid.

In many ways the first half was typical USC basketball under Kevin O'Neill. Slow pace, lots of defense, and neither team being able to shoot a lick. USC shot just 32.3% (10 of 31) in the first half, quite similar to the team that shot 33% from the field and averaged 40.5 points in their last two games, both losses.

Georgia was shooting poorly before making three straight shots in a 7-0 to take a brief 25-23 lead. For the half, Georgia shot 42.9% (nine of 21). Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored nine points to lead Georgia. The Trojans outrebounded the Bulldogs 19-13 in the opening 20 minutes.
