imageGeorgia basketball loses double-digit halftime lead at Kentucky, falls 85-71

Georgia basketball went toe to toe with mighty Kentucky on Tuesday night, but the Bulldogs simply could not measure up.

    Title is not correct. Dawgs had an 8 point lead at halftime. While they played a good first half and showed a lot of energy, they clearly don’t have the horses to go toe-to-toe yet with the big boys. They’re limited on offense and the things that won them games previously didn’t occur - defensive stops, rebounding and free throws. They had no answer for 34. Still a lot of positives with this team. Look forward to watching them improve. Go Dawgs!

    @STACEDAWG up 11 at the 56-second mark -- double-digit first half lead -- and you are right -- I do not know who could have stopped No. 34 tonight

    Georgia played a good first half. Too bad, they could not sustain that type of play in the second half. The team played sloppy and lazy at times in the second half. I still feel they will be ok the remainder of the season.

    We didn't defend the others as well in the second half. Dennis Rodman would have had trouble with Tshiebwe last night.

    Losing at Rupp by 3 points is nothing to be ashamed of. I am thrilled at the progress our new coach and players are making. Never could understand how we can field championship football teams with 85 players yet seem incapable of fielding championship basketball teams with 15 people. The trends are very promising for Bulldog B-Ball!

    Would have loved to see how this game would’ve played out if refs didn’t miss the blatant travel on Tshiebwe early in 2nd half that led to their five point possession. Dawgs went from up four to down 1 and UK had first lead since early in game. Huge momentum shift. Obviously dawgs still had a chance after that and Tshiebwe may have still been too much but that non-call/possession seemed to really change the trajectory of the game.

    Just like football, it’s about recruiting- hopefully White can direct some talent to Georgia and then the talent difference won’t be as great-Georgia just couldn’t sustain over the full game. But definitely seems headed in the right direction
