Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Andre Stringer scored 18 points to lead LSU to a 61-53 victory against Georgia in a Southeastern Conference game on Wednesday night.

Stringer matched his career-high with four 3-pointers. His last 3-pointer ignited a 9-2 run, which helped the Tigers pick up their fifth victory in the past six games.

LSU (17-10, 7-6), which had a ten-point lead with slightly more than two minutes remaining in the game, didn't clinch the victory until the last 30 seconds. A field goal and two free throws by Gerald Robinson, Jr. put the Bulldogs behind by six at 54-48.

Georgia cut its deficit to four points at 57-53 when Robinson made a layup with 27 seconds to play. The Bulldogs (12-15, 3-10) didn't score again, while the Tigers made two free throws.

Robinson scored 17 points to lead Georgia, which lost its third straight.
