Poor shooting doomed the Bulldogs again as they fell to the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers 67-63 (Box Score). The Dawgs shot only 38% overall from the floor, but did hold WKU to a measley 32%. The difference in the game was at the free throw line, where the Hilltoppers made 18-of-27 compared to the Bulldogs’ 6-of-12.
Terrance Woodbury had the hot hand for the Dawgs in the first half, scoring 16 points and finishing with 18 overall. Trey Thompkins added 10 points off the bench.
Georgia, now 5-2, travels to Chicago on Saturday to face the Illinois Fighting Illini at the United Center. The game will be broadcast at 12:00 p.m. ET on ESPNU.
