Georgia’s road woes continued on Wednesday night with a 82-63 defeat at Auburn. Trey Thompkins was ineffective after picking up two fouls in the first ten minutes of the game, and then fouling out with more than eight minutes left.
The loss drops Georgia to 0-8 on the road this season and 0-5 in the SEC.
Thompkins finished his dismal night with six points and six turnovers in only 13 minutes played. Ricky McPhee also had a poor night, shooting only 2-of-9 from three-point range.
Travis Leslie led the struggling Bulldogs with 19 points and 17 rebounds. He was the only bright spot in an otherwise poor display of basketball by the Dawgs. Georgia shot only 36.5% from the floor and turned the ball over 19 times.
The South Carolina Gamecocks visit Stegeman Coliseum on Saturday. The Bulldogs look to avenge their 78-77 loss in Columbia on Jan. 30. The game will be televised by the SEC Network at 4:00 p.m. ET.
