Georgia seemed well aware that Clemson was not a shooting team, and had no problem letting the Tigers try to win the game from the perimeter. Clemson relied on several early-game dunks to establish a presence inside, but their perimeter shooting left a lot to be desired.
Trends: Georgia's solid play at home continues. The Bulldogs are undefeated at home and in Georgia. Their combined winning margin at home is 18.3 points; its 16.5.
What won the game: Mike Mercer's clutch three-point bucket with two minuets put the Bulldogs up 70-66 and seemed to slow Clemson's big second-half run. But it was Billy Humphrey's rebound and assist to Levi Stukes that won the game.
Player of the game: Mercer's 22 points and huge three-pointer was necessary for the win.
