MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Charles Mann had 17 points and Marcus Thornton had 11 points as Georgia knocked off Kansas State 50-46 on Wednesday.

Mann led the Bulldogs in scoring for a second consecutive game and fourth time this season.

With the loss, Kansas State has dropped back-to-back non-conference home games for the first time since 1987. Thomas Gipson led Kansas State with 19 points, including a 7-of-10 performance from the free-throw line.

After falling behind by as many as 15 points, Kansas State built a 46-43 lead with 2:50 left.

However, a 3-pointer from Nemanja Djurisic thwarted its momentum, giving Georgia a 47-46 lead with 1:05 left.

The Bulldogs made three of their four final free throws and scored the game's final seven points to clinch the road victory.

Kansas State's 12 first-half points were the second fewest in school history.
