ATHENS - Tying last season's win total in just 11 games of the 2005-06 season, the Georgia Bulldogs …
Georgia makes Clemson undefeated no more
Thoughts: It is becoming more and more evident that these Bulldogs are going to be difficult to beat at home. Being young and inexperienced will make winning on the road a difficult thing to do, but the Bulldogs have shown (in Athens) that they are able to compete with big-name schools. Clemson and Georgia Tech might not be top-tier college teams, but both have big names and last season both blew the Bulldogs out – this season was a different story. Georgia seemed well aware that Clemson was not a shooting team, and had no problem letting the Tigers try to win the game from the perimeter. Clemson relied on several early-game dunks to establish a presence inside, but their perimeter shooting left a lot to be desired. Trends: Georgia's solid play at home continues. The Bulldogs are undefeated at home and in Georgia. Their combined winning margin at home is 18.3 points; its 16.5. What won the game: Mike Mercer's clutch three-point bucket with two minuets put the Bulldogs up 70-66 and seemed to slow Clemson's big second-half run. But it was Billy Humphrey's rebound and assist to Levi Stukes that won the game. Player of the game: Mercer's 22 points and huge three-pointer was necessary for the win.
