Georgia vs. Georgia Tech final score: Yellow Jackets win, 62-54

Georgia's miserable season continued on Wednesday, as the Bulldogs dropped to 2-6 with a loss to the Yellow Jackets.

A tough year for Mark Fox's team got no easier on Tuesday night, as Georgia lost, 62-54, to Georgia Tech in Atlanta.

There just isn't a lot of talent on the Bulldogs' roster, especially on the offensive end. As a result, that puts a lot of pressure on sophomore G Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, their one shot-creator in the halfcourt.

If Caldwell-Pope, a McDonald's All-American who was on the radar of NBA scouts since he came to Athens, can't get it going, Georgia struggles to find much offense.

That's what happened on Tuesday, as the 6'5, 205-pound guard scored 16 points on 5-18 shooting. None of the other Bulldogs scored in double digits.

Georgia Tech, in contrast, got 18 points from freshman F Marcus Georges-Hunt and 12 points from senior G Mfon Udofia, more than enough to get past the anemic Georgia offense.

The win moved the Yellow Jackets to 5-2 on the season and, while they aren't overflowing with NBA talent either, they appear to be much farther along than their in-state rival.
