The Vanderbilt Commodores stopped Georgia’s nine-game winning streak with a 73-66 win in Nashville last night. The loss drops the Bulldogs to 12-3 overall and 1-1 in the SEC.

Travis Leslie led the Dawgs with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Trey Thompkins had 13 points ans 13 rebounds, but he was held in check most of the second half as Georgia was trying to pound the ball inside.

Gerald Robinson, playing in his hometown for the first time since transferring from Tennessee State, scored 20 points and had 3 assists.

With 9:48 remaining in the game, the Dawgs suffered a blow when Jeremy Price picked up his fifth foul. And with 5 minutes left in the game, Mark Fox picked up a technical foul. He was likely upset at the foul disparity, which resulted in Vandy shooting 35 free-throws to Georgia’s 15.

The Hoop Dawgs came into the game ranked 24th in the AP Poll. It is the first time Georgia has been ranked since the 2003 season.

Next up for the Bulldogs is another SEC road game at Ole Miss on Saturday, January 15. The game will be televised by FSN at 5:00 p.m. ET.
