Georgia Tech beats Georgia 68-56 in Athens
Georgia Tech dominated Georgia in the second half en route to a 68-56 win over the Bulldogs. It was Tech’s first win in Athens since 1976.
The Bulldogs led 29-25 at the half behind Gerald Robinson’s 16 points. The Dawgs shot well from behind the arc and also got some fast break points.
But that strategy came to a halt in the second half as Georgia Tech stepped up the defensive pressure. The Jackets also opened the half on an 18-4 run and never looked back.
Robinson finished with 20 points after only scoring four in the second half. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Vincent Williams each added 10 for the Dawgs.
Georgia (4-5) ended the night shooting 34.7% (17-for-49) and 26.1% (6-for-23) from three-point range.
Next up for the Bulldogs is a trip to play the USC Trojans on Sat., Dec. 17 at 10:00 p.m. ET (FSN).
