Georgia closes 2011-12 season with 63-41 loss to Vanderbilt

2012 SEC TournamentGeorgia was hot on the first day of the 2012 SEC Tournament. On day two, they went ice cold and fell to Vanderbilt 63-41.

The loss ends the 2011-12 season for the Hoop Dawgs, who finish 15-17 overall and 5-11 in the SEC.

The game got off to a shaky start when Georgia’s Marcus Thornton picked up two fouls in the first 1:30 of the game. Then Donte Williams and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope each picked up their second fouls with 11:46 and 8:38 remaining, respectively.

All three sat on the bench and watched a lackluster first half that saw Georgia take a 25-24 lead into the break. One of the bright spots was freshman John Cannon, who scored six points on a field goal and four free-throws.

The tide turned in the second half as Vanderbilt opened on a 12-2 run to put the Dawgs at bay. The Bulldogs couldn’t make anything in the second, hitting only 6 of 27 shots.

Playing in their final game at Georgia, Dustin Ware scored ten points while Gerald Robinson added three. A bonus for Ware came in the first half when his first field goal, a three-pointer, pushed him over the 1,000 career points mark at UGA.
