Georgia Crushes Chattanooga 87-56, Improves to 3-4

Kenny Gaines hit a three-point jumper to open the scoring and Georgia never trailed in a 87-56 thrashing of the Chattanooga Mocs Monday night in Athens. The win improves Georgia’s overall record to 3-4.

Gaines finished the game with 10 points, 4 assists, 2 rebounds, and 2 blocks. Nemanja Djurisic came off the bench again and led the Bulldogs in scoring with 14 points. Djurisic also had 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1 block.

“That certainly was a good win for us,” said head coach Mark Fox. “We played really well in the first half, especially defensively. I thought that we came in with a good approach and good plan and really executed it well in the first half. It was a really good night for us, especially with the fact that Charles [Mann] didn’t play much. It was a good win for us against a team that I thought was a really hard playing team.”

Overall, 13 Bulldogs scored in the game. Guard Juwan Parker was the only one to score in double-figures with 11. The rest of the scoring tally shaped up like this: Brandon Morris (9), Marcus Thornton (8), Cameron Forte (8), John Cannon (8), J.J. Frazier (6), Kenny Paul Geno (4), Taylor Echols (3), Charles Mann (2), Donte’ Williams (2), and Tim Dixon (2).

The Bulldogs were hot from the floor, hitting 34-of-67 shots (50.7%), and were also decent from three-point range (5-of-18, 27.8%).

Georgia outrebounded Chattanooga 51-38 and had 12 more assists than the Mocs, but the Dawgs did lose the turnover battle 13-10.

The Bulldogs get a break for final exams and don’t play their next game until Saturday, Nov. 14 when they host the Lipscomb Bisons. The game will be broadcast via GTV at 4pm ET.
