Georgia Bulldogs 64, Furman Paladins 50: The (Slightly Delayed) Instantaneous Ill-Informed Roundball Wrapup

Three days after his point production was severely limited by early foul trouble, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led the Georgia Bulldogs with 17 points as Georgia claimed a 64-50 home win over the Furman Paladins on Friday night.

Caldwell-Pope was one of four double-digit Bulldog scorers, together with Gerald Robinson (13), Dustin Ware (11), and Donte` Williams (10). Over the course of the evening, the Red and Black shot nearly 49 per cent from the field (21 of 43), 50 per cent from beyond the arc (6 of 12), and better than 94 per cent from the free throw line (16 of 17), sinking each of their attempts from the charity stripe prior to a lone miss in the final 31 seconds by John Cannon, who led the team with four rebounds.

Georgia finished with eight blocks and eight steals in a game that was tied 9-9 early before the Bulldogs went on a 9-0 run. The Paladins answered with a 9-0 stretch of their own later in the game to narrow the Red and Black edge to 43-36, but the Fox Hounds led by as many as 19 in an easy victory marred only by the loss of Marcus Thornton, who went out with a first-half knee injury. The seriousness of the injury remains unknown, but Thornton did not return to the game.
