Half and Half
In the first half, Georgia outscored Alabama 50-35, but it was a lot more dominating than that.
Georgia shot 56.7 percent from the floor, 60.0 percent from 3-pt range and 77.8 percent from the free throw line.
On the other hand, Alabama was not so good. 46.2 percent from the floor, 40.0 from 3-pt range and 63.6 from the free throw line.
The second half was a different story. The Bulldogs were outscored 43-26 and every shooting statistic got worse for the Dawgs and better for the Tide.
Georgia shot 40.7 percent from the floor, 14.3 from 3-pt range and 75.0 from the free throw line.
Alabama shot 57.1 percent from the floor, 45.5 from 3-pt range and 87.5 from the free throw line.
Georgia's 3 big stars from the first half all struggled in the second half.
Sundiata Gaines... 15 points (5-5 FG) in the first half... 7 points (2-6 FG) in the second.
Levi Stukes... 12 points (4-8 FG) in the first half... 0 points (0-2 FG) in the second.
Mike Mercer... 10 points (4-6 FG) in the first half... 5 points (2-5 FG) in the second.
Then there is the hero for the Crimson Tide. Ronald Steele... 5 points (1-5 FG) in the first half... 8 points (3-4 FG) in the second.
Georgia will need to play two full halves if the want to win their next few. They host Kentucky and LSU at home this week before going on the road to challange Tennessee.
