Georgia Bulldogs Fall at No. 21 Colorado Buffaloes 84-70

Georgia fell behind by as many as 16 points in the first half and couldn’t recover as they fell to the 21st-ranked Colorado Buffaloes 84-70 in Boulder late Saturday night.

Colorado came out of the gates hot from three-point range. The Buffaloes made five of them in the first nine minutes of the game, and their fifth gave them a 21-15 lead with 11:16 remaining in the half.

That three-pointer started an 18-5 run by Colorado that was one of the big keys to the game. The other? Colorado’s free-throw shooting. The Buffaloes went to the line 26 times and didn’t miss a single shot.

In the second half, Colorado stretched their lead back to as many as 15 points before Georgia cut it to 10 with 6:11 left in the game. But the hot shooting from the charity stripe helped the Buffaloes seal the victory.

The loss ends a five-game winning streak and drops Georgia to 6-5 overall. It doesn’t get any easier for the Hoop Dawgs with trips to George Washington and #25 Missouri up next.

Kenny Gaines and Nemanja Djurisic led the Bulldogs with 12 points each. Brandon Morris and Charles Mann added 11 points apiece, while Marcus Thornton scored nine and Juwan Parker seven.

The Bulldogs finished the game shooting 50% (28-of-56) and 62.5% (5-of-8) from three-point range. Again Georgia was bad from the free-throw line. The Dawgs made only 9 of their 18 attempts (50%).

Colorado was just slightly better from the floor. They made 25-of-49 shots (51%) and, again, made all 26 of their free-throws.

Georgia’s next game is at George Washington (11-1) on Friday, Jan. 3, 2014. The game will be televised by CSS at 7pm ET.
