Florida A&M vs. Georgia final Score: Bulldogs out-battle Rattlers, 82-73

Don't look now, folks, but Bulldogs basketball is the owner of a three-game winning streak.

USA TODAY Sports

The Georgia Bulldogs won their third consecutive game Saturday afternoon as they cruised past Florida A&M, 82-73, in Stegeman Coliseum.

Nemanja Djurisic led the way with a career-high 21 points off the pine for the Bulldogs. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope also had a solid game of his own, with 11 points and nine rebounds.

This game was all Georgia's from the get-go as the Bulldogs scored the first eight points of the game. After that, they built their lead ever larger by draining seven of their 11 first-half threes to help form a 13-point halftime lead.

The Bulldogs came out a bit cold in the second with only one field goal in the first seven minutes but the Rattlers still couldn't cut the deficit any closer than six points. Each time A&M seemed to threaten, Caldwell-Pope or Donte' Williams answered with some quick buckets to extend their lead back to double digits.

The Bulldogs will now wrap up their non-conference schedule Friday against George Washington at home.
