Mississippi State Vs. Georgia Score: Isaiah Crowell Watches Dawgs Take 42-29 Halftime Lead

The Georgia Bulldogs basketball team is putting in work for Mark Richt’s football team today, beating up on the Mississippi St. Bulldogs with football recruits looking on. Five-star RB Isaiah Crowell and four-star DT Jonathan Jenkins are among those reportedly in the house, with the crowd chanting Crowell’s name at one point. (For more Dawgs football recruiting, go here.)

But back to the action on the court. The Dawgs led by as many as 17 points before a late first half run, largely engineered by State guard Dee Bost, cut the lead to 11 with about a minute to go.

Georgia is completely dominating the boards, more than doubling up MSU on the glass. Travis Leslie leads with four boards. The Dawgs aren’t shooting much better than the … Dawgs, but are simply giving themselves more opportunities, even though they’ve also coughed it up nine times.

Trey Thompkins, Leslie, and Jeremy Price lead Georgia with eight points each. Another edge: Georgia has made six of its 10 three-point attempts, while Missy State has only hit two of its 10.
