Instantaneous Ill-Informed Roundball Wrapup: Georgia Bulldogs 84, Colorado Buffaloes 74

The Red and Black had unfinished business with Colorado, a sports program that handed Georgia the most embarrassing gridiron loss of the Mark Richt era and then comically made a play to steal Coach Richt away, so the Bulldogs exacted revenge upon the Buffaloes on Tuesday night, claiming an 84-74 victory on the basketball court in Stegeman Coliseum.

This time, the Hoop Dogs had the hotter hand from beyond the arc, sinking 40 per cent of their three-pointers while their guests drained shots from downtown at barely half that rate (21.4%). Georgia was slightly better from the field, as 25 of the Bulldogs’ two-point shots went in, as compared to 22 of the Buffs’ 52 such attempts.

The Red and Black led in rebounds (40-35), points in the paint (36-26), and points off the bench (15-12), but 20 Georgia turnovers led to 24 Colorado points, and the Fox Hounds continued to struggle at the charity stripe, making just 65.1 per cent of their free throws. (Personally, I have no patience for poor free throw shooting, for this simple reason: I can make a free throw.)

Fully one-quarter of Georgia’s points (21 of 84) were tallied by Gerald Robinson, who also accounted for one-fourth of the Bulldogs’ successful free throws (7 of 28). Travis Leslie contributed 19 points, seven rebounds, and a pair of steals in 29 minutes. While the win was closer than it should have been, the game still goes on the left-hand side of the ledger, which is what counts while the team tries to find its feet.
