Georgia had four double-figure scorers, led by a career-high 19 from Toumani Camara, in an 83-68 victory over Cincinnati in men’s basketball Saturday night at Stegeman Colisuem. The win keeps the Bulldogs undefeated at 6-0, their best start since the 1982-83 Final Four season.
Georgia also got 18 points from Justin Kier and 17 points from Tye Fagan. Sahvir Wheeler had 12 points and seven assists. The Bulldogs held a commanding 49-26 lead at intermission, shooting 55.6% from the field, that included a 15-0 run to end the half.
“I’m just proud of the way we competed,” coach Tom Crean told reporters following the game. “We knew (Cincinnati was) going to come after it. Our guys responded. We had a great walk-through. I was certainly concerned going into it because of exam week and we’ve been a little up-and-down this week. But they competed at a high level.”
Jeremiah Davenport led Cincinnati (2-4) with 18 points.
Georgia remains home next week as it ends its non-conference schedule against Northeastern on Tuesday.
