How the game was won: The return of Georgia's Kenny Gaines coupled with a strong first-half offensive performance by Nemanja Djurisic put the Bulldogs ahead early on, the two combining for 17 of the Bulldogs' 38 first-half points. Georgia (2-1) never trailed against Troy (1-2) after the Trojans put up two free throws 15 seconds into the game, and ultimately secured a 82-60 victory in Stegeman Coliseum on Friday night. Marcus Thornton surged in the second half, putting up nine points of his 17 total. He and Djurisic tied for lead among Georgia scorers.
Notable: Georgia has won five consecutive games against Troy since 1977. However, the two teams have not met since 1981. Georgia's football team, on the other hand, hosted the Trojans in September and won 66-0.
