Buffs nip Dawgs

BOULDER, Colo. - The Georgia men's basketball team fell to 4-3 Monday night, losing on the road to Colorado, 70-68.

Freshman guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led Georgia (4-3) with 15 points and five rebounds. He has scored in double-figures in all seven games for the Bulldogs this season.

Senior guard Gerald Robinson Jr. and sophomore forward Donte Williams chipped in 14 and 11 points, respectively.

Colorado was led by freshman guard Spencer Dinwiddie with 16 points and seven rebounds. Dinwiddie and three other Buffalos had double-digit point performances.

"We made too many critical errors tonight that you can't make and still find success on the road," said head coach Mark Fox. "We got off to a really poor start defensively in the second half and then we had to play from behind and that's hard to do on the road."

In the first half, Georgia led by as many as 12 points. After Colorado tied the game at 30 with 2:24 remaining, Georgia rallied around Robinson to take a 38-34 halftime lead.

In the second half, Colorado opened on an 11-1 run, aided by Georgia starting the half going 0-11 from the field. Midway through half, a pair of three-pointers by freshman forward Nemanja Djurisic and senior guard Dustin Ware brought the game to a 45-45 tie.

But that's as close as the Bulldogs would get. Colorado wouldn't trail again in the half, capturing its largest lead of 11 at the 2:54 mark.

A rush of Georgia scoring in the final three minutes fell just short, as Colorado's Asika Booker drained a free throw with four seconds remaining to put the Colorado lead to four points, and all but seal the victory for the Buffalos.

With the loss, Georgia falls to 6-2 in its series with Colorado. The win is the Buffaloes' 26th straight non-conference win in Boulder.

Georgia returns to action Friday against Cincinnati at 7:00 p.m. in Athens as part of the SEC/Big East Invitational. Friday's matchup is scheduled to start at 7:00 p.m. and will be televised on ESPNU.
