Tom Crean and Squad move to 2-0 following win over The Citadel
The Georgia Bulldogs have moved to 2-0 on the season following their 95-86 win over The Citadel last night at Stegeman Coliseum. Led by Anthony Edward's 29 points on 10-23 from the field.
It was a rather close contest for most of the night, with the lead failing to extend past nine. Georgia scored the opening bucket of the second half, and never relinquished the lead.
19 of Edward's game-high 29 points came in the second half to finish off the victory for the Dawgs, but he had a bit of help in the contest.
Edwards was one of six Bulldogs to enter double-figures last night as the Dawgs got a bit more of a fight from The Citadel than they probably expected. Hayden Brown had 26 points, including 4-7 from the three for Citadel in the loss.
Despite creating 28 points off of turnovers last night, this Georgia defense hasn't played too great to start off the season. Allowing 79.0 PPG, that's 297th in the country. Playing Western Carolina and The Citadel. Not exactly Kentucky.
The good news? With Edwards, Wheeler, and Crump they sure as heck can put the ball in the hoop.
In two contests now, the Dawgs are averaging 93.0 points per game. That's almost 22 points higher than their average last season, of 71.1.
It's still early in the 2019-2020 basketball campaign, and Georgia certainly hasn't played anyone of note just yet, but with a freshmen led team getting off to this kind of a start, the best is still yet to come.
