ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Levi Randolph and Rodney Cooper hit back-to-back 3-pointers in the closing minutes, leading Alabama to an ugly 52-45 victory that ended Georgia's five-game winning streak Tuesday night.

The Crimson Tide (16-8, 8-3) won for the eighth time in 10 games with another stifling defensive effort. Alabama has held nine straight SEC opponents to less than 60 points, limiting the Bulldogs to 31 percent (16 of 52) from the field.

Georgia (12-12, 6-5) went more than 10 minutes without a field goal in the second half but still had a chance because of both teams' offensive woes. When Donte Williams slammed in a wild miss off the backboard, the Bulldogs led 41-40 with 2:37 remaining.

But Randolph swished a 3-pointer, and Cooper followed with another to finish off Georgia.
