Georgia led Florida by 15 at halftime and by 15 with 9:45 remaining in the game. But the Gators chipped away at the Bulldogs’ lead and it dwindled down to only two with 1:42 remaining.  Both teams then went scoreless the rest of the way and Georgia hung on to win 78-76.

The Bulldogs also beat the Gators last year in Athens by two points, 88-86. The win improves UGA’s overall record to 13-14 and 5-9 in the SEC.

Trey Thompkins led the Bulldogs with 20 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Travis Leslie added 12 points, Dustin Ware scored 10 and Jeremy Price came off the bench to score 13.

Georgia faces the no. 2 Kentucky Wildcats in their final regular-season home game on Wednesday. The game will be televised by the SEC Network at 8:00 p.m. ET.
