Florida A&M vs Georgia: Mark Fox impressed with team's first half performance in win

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Georgia head coach Mark Fox was impressed by his team's first half performance in a 82-73 Bulldogs win over the visiting Florida A&M Rattlers.

The Georgia Bulldogs won their third straight game on Saturday, defeating the visiting Florida A&M Rattlers at Stegeman Coliseum, 82-73. The Bulldogs jumped out early, scoring the first eight points of the game on their way to a 13-point halftime lead, and held off the Rattlers despite a cold start to the second half.

Head coach Mark Few was particularly pleased with his team's performance in the first half:

"We are getting better as a team. You could see it in the first half," said head coach Mark Fox. "There is still a long way to go, but we have made some progress. Our defense was good in the first half. We don't have any selfishness on our team. I thought we played some good team ball, and that was predicated on good team defense."

Georgia built their first half advantage on the strength of seven of 11 shooting from behind the three point line. Overall, the Bulldogs were 17-of-32 from the floor (57.1 percent). Georgia was led by 21 points and seven rebounds from Nemanja Djurisic . Kentavious Caldwell-Pope chipped in 11 points, nine rebounds and two assists in the victory.

Georgia is now 3-0 all-time against Florida A&M. The Bulldogs finish their non-conference schedule with a Friday contest against George Washington of the Atlantic 10.
