Bulldogs freshman Anthony Edwards, the possible top pick in this summer's NBA draft, was held to six points on 2-of-7 shooting. Rayshaun Hammonds led the Bulldogs with 15 points, and Tyree Crump scored 11.
With seven assists, point guard Sahvir Wheeler moved into second on Georgia’s freshman single-season assists list, with 109, passing Rashad Wright, Moses White and Dustin Ware. Ahead of Wheeler sits Litterial Green, who recorded 133 in the 1989 season.
The Bulldogs cruised to a 38-29 lead at halftime thanks to making half their shots from the field (15 of 30) and more than doubling the Aggies in rebounds (21-10) in the first 20 minutes.
Saturday’s outcome was par for the Bulldogs’ course this season, in teasing their fans with a lead before unraveling in the second half. At this point it would take a miracle -- aka an SEC tournament championship -- for Edwards to play in the NCAA Tournament in what’s shaping up as his lone collegiate season.
Up next for the Bulldogs is a game against No. 11 Auburn at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Stegeman Coliseum.
