AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Chris Denson scored 18 points and Auburn made six straight free throws over the final 34 seconds in a 74-67 victory over Georgia on Saturday.

The Tigers (10-9, 2-6 Southeastern Conference) went 11 of 13 from the foul line over the final five minutes to secure their second straight SEC win after dropping 16 in a row.

Auburn had five players score in double figures. KT Harrell scored 13 of his 16 points in the first half and made three 3-pointers. Freshman Tahj Shamsid-Deen, a Georgia native, finished with 12 points and four assists while Asauhn Dixon-Tatum and Allen Payne scored 10 apiece.

Charles Mann scored 18 points and Nemanja Djurisic had 11 for the Bulldogs (10-10, 4-4), who have dropped three straight games.

Payne, Shamsid-Deen and Dixon-Tatum all hit a pair of free throws down the stretch, when the Bulldogs twice pulled to within three points.
