It wasn't exactly pretty but Georgia held on for a 63-54 victory over Bowling Green to move to 2-0 on the season. It was really a mixed bag for the Bulldogs who shot the ball well and executed at both ends of the floor. However, the rebounding margin was once again a major cause for concern as the Falcons owned a 38-26 advantage on the glass and came up with 15 offensive rebounds.
Gerald Robinson scored a game-high 15 points and handed out six assists for the Bulldogs. Freshman Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored all 11 of his points in the second half as he battled foul trouble throughout the game. Dustin Ware finished with nine points and four steals while Marcus Thornton chipped in nine points, five rebounds and three assists. Mark Fox was forced to juggle his lineup throughout the game due to foul trouble by his club. Six different Bulldogs had at least three fouls in the game.
Despite all of the extra opportunities that Georgia gave them off the glass, the Bulldogs defense was solid against the Falcons who shot just 37 percent for the game. Dee Brown led the way with 15 points while Scott Thomas chipped in 11 points and eight rebounds. Craig Sealey came off the bench to score 10 points and grab five boards before fouling out.
