Gerald Robinson, Jr. scored a season-high 22 points as the Georgia Bulldogs rolled over the Ole Miss Rebels 98-76 in Oxford. All five Bulldog starters scored in double-figures.

The win improves Georgia to 13-3 overall and 2-1 in the SEC. The road win in the SEC was the first for Georgia under Mark Fox. Their last was at Kentucky on March 4, 2009.

Trey Thompkins scored 21 points, followed by Travis Leslie with 17, Dustin Ware with 15 and Jeremy Price with 12. Marcus Thornton and Sherrard Brantley came off the bench to add six and five points respectively.

Georgia was 33-of-52 from the floor (63.5%), 6-of-12 from three-point range and 26-of-27 from the free-throw line.

It was a long week for the Dawgs as the winter weather kept them in Nashville after their loss to Vanderbilt on Wednesday. They then bussed to Oxford.

Georgia returns to Athens to host the Tennessee Volunteers on Tuesday, January 18. The game will be televised by ESPNU at 7:00 p.m. ET.
