East Tennessee State vs. Georgia: Fox says offense has 'gotten much better'

Chris Graythen

The Bulldogs are feeling good after a convincing win over East Tennessee State on Friday.

The Georgia Bulldogs were able to come away with a very methodical 54-38 win over the East Tennessee State Buccaneers on Friday night at home.

Georgia shot 63.8 percent from the field, despite only scoring 54 points for the game. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 13 points to pace the team, giving the Bulldogs that extra spark on the offensive end.

Donte Williams also contributed with 12 points in the winning effort.

The victory snapped the four-game losing streak for Georgia, which has had a brutal schedule to start the season, including the No. 1 Indiana Hoosiers and the 11th ranked UCLA Bruins as part of the Legends Classic in New York.

Coach Mark Fox was happy with the performance, and feels good things are ahead for the offense, as well as the collective team, according to dogbytesonline.com:

"We played against two, traditionally, very good basketball programs in New York, who traditionally have been great man-to-man defensive teams," Georgia coach Mark Fox said. "And we forced both of them to go to a zone because our man offense has gotten much better from where it was a year ago. (Friday night), we played well against a zone, so hopefully we can continue to improve and play well against whatever people choose to defend us with."

The Bulldogs' defense was the key to the victory, as the Buccaneers only shot 28 percent from the field. Lester Wilson was the leading scorer for East Tennessee State with 12 points.
