The Georgia Bulldogs improved their record to 4-1 after a 54-48 win over Santa Clara yesterday in an NIT Season Tip-Off consolation game. Playing in his first game as a Bulldog, freshman Howard “Trey” Thompkins scored 10 points and grabbed 2 rebounds. Thompkins also blocked 5 shots and had 1 steal.

Terrance Woodbury (14 points) and Albert Jackson (12 points) led the Hoop Dawgs in scoring. Although the Dawgs only shot a dismal 34% from the field, their tenacious defense held the Broncos to a lackluster 36.8%.
