George Washington vs Georgia: Fox saw some 'nice things' in win

Kevin C. Cox

Georgia is starting to play winning basketball, taking care of another non-conference contest by beating George Washington.

The Georgia Bulldogs are starting to look like a solid basketball team, beating the George Washington Colonials 52-41 on Friday night for their fourth-consecutive victory.

While none of the wins have come against any powerhouses, Georgia (6-7) can still feel good about building momentum heading into its SEC conference schedule, which kicks off Jan. 9 against the No. 13 Florida Gators.

Head coach Mark Fox was very pleased with his team's performance against George Washington, feeling as though things are starting to fall in place for his group, according to georgiadogs.com.

"That's a good win," said head coach Mark Fox. "We won the rebounding battle, and we shot well from the field. There are some nice things on that stat sheet. Then you see the turnover column and we have 25 (turnovers). I thought in the first half we looked like a team that needed school to start. We just had to grind through because we've been working hard. When it really mattered, though, I thought we got our energy back and our spirit back, and we beat a good team. I was really proud of a lot of our kids' effort."

It didn't look good early on, with Georgia having its customary problems shooting the basketball. The Bulldogs average only 60.6 points per game, bad enough for 303rd in the nation.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is the only player on the team averaging double figures with 17.5 points per game. However, Nemanja Djurisic stepped up, putting in 17 points against the Colonials to earn the win.
