ROAD DAWGS: UGA snags big win out in L.A.

When Trey Thompkins and Travis Leslie departed for the NBA draft many figured that this would be a rebuilding year for the Georgia Bulldogs, and with the 4-5 start and a trip to Los Angeles on the schedule, the odds were in the rebuilding camp’s favor. However Kentavious Caldwell-Pope went off for 21 points, including four 3-pointers, as Georgia pulled off a stunning 63-59 road victory. Gerald Robinson added 17 points for Georgia, who won for the first time since a 61-57 victory over Notre Dame back on November 22. Caldwell-Pope drained a huge 3-pointer with 43 seconds to play and iced the win with a pair of free throws late. The five-star true freshman averages 13.4 points per game, but the 21 points and 39 minutes played were both career highs. As a team the Dawgs were 9-13 from three-point range and shot a season-high 51% from the field. Mark Fox’s squad next plays Tuesday against Mercer.
