As was expected, the Georgia Bulldogs struggled through the first half of their matchup with the Florida Gators Tuesday night trailing 35-21 at halftime. The bigger Gators have had their way inside hitting half of their field goal attempts by pounding away at the Bulldogs' frontcourt.
Without a low post threat, Florida's defense has clamped down on the perimeter and made things tough offensively for Georgia. Nemanja Djurisic was the lone bright spot in the first half finishind with 10 points and three rebounds and the game's lone highlight for Georgia. While sandwiched between two defenders at the free throw line, Djurisic turned and tossed the ball off of the backboard and retrieved it for the lay in.
Bradley Beal leads all scorers in the first half with 12 points hitting 4-5 from beyond-the-arc. Mike Rosario came of the bench to score seven. Patric Young netted six points and grabbed five rebounds in the first half.
