Gerald Robinson, Jr. dished to an open Jeremy Price, who banked in the winning shot with one second left to lead the Georgia Bulldogs over the Saint Louis Billikens 61-59.
The win was the first in an opponent’s arena since a March 2009 victory at Kentucky. Georgia is now 1-11 in true road games under head coach Mark Fox.
