TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - JaMychal Green had 19 points and nine rebounds to lead Alabama to a 65-57 win over Georgia on Saturday for the Crimson Tide's 20th win.

Charvez Davis hit four second-half 3-pointers and scored 17 to help the Tide (20-10, 12-4 Southeastern Conference) rebound from a 27-point humbling Tuesday night at No. 14 Florida and boost its NCAA tournament hopes.

The Bulldogs (20-10, 9-7) cut an 11-point deficit down to 62-57 on Trey Thompkins' 3-pointer with 32 seconds left to cap an 8-2 run.

Then, Andrew Steele hit two free throws and Green made one while Georgia missed its final two shots.

The win meant Alabama, which finishes 16-0 at Coleman Coliseum, could share the overall SEC title with the Gators if they lose at Vanderbilt later Saturday.

The Bulldogs could have stayed alive for a possible No. 2 seed in the SEC tournament with a win.
