USC vs. Georgia: Mark Fox was 'proud of our effort' against Trojans

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Georgia head coach Mark Fox felt his team played well against the very defensive USC team.

The Georgia Bulldogs earned a solid win on Saturday night when they defeated the USC Trojans, 64-56. This win was big for Georgia, who are trying to crawl back to .500 and are now 4-7 this year.

Georgia head coach Mark Fox felt the team played well, especially with how they scored the ball against a solid defensive squad:

"That was a terrific win for our team," said head coach Mark Fox. "We scored the ball pretty efficiently against a good defensive team. That was very pleasing to me. Kentavious [Caldwell-Pope] played a great game, and he is obviously continuing to grow up with this team. I was proud of our effort and determination especially in the second half. This is a really good win going into the holidays."

Georgia was in a battle at the half as they trailed USC by one, but they were able to outscore the Trojans by 11 points to get the win.

The way Georgia pulled away can be credited to Caldwell-Pope, who led the Bulldogs by scoring 25 points and had 19 of those in the second half. Caldwell-Pope was also instrumental in a 12-4 run to start the second half, scoring 10 of those points. That run pretty much allowed Georgia to pull away and get the win.
