Georgia's victorious effort was lead by sophomore forward Trey Thompkins, who scored a career high 35 points while grabbing 15 rebounds. Thompkins became the first Georgia player to score 35 points in a game in nearly two decades, as the feat was last accomplished by Bulldog great Litterial Green on February 12th, 1991, against the Florida Gators. Thompkins' 15 rebounds were also a career high.
"Trey's numbers were very good," said Fox. "I said to my assistants that Trey should get 40 points and I think he should have gotten 40, to be honest with you. He certainly carried us at certain points during the game."
As impressive as Thompkins' statistics were, the Bulldog victory was not a solo effort. He was assisted by ten other players in the scoring column, most notably sophomore point guard Dustin Ware, who contributed 12 points. Sophomore guard Travis Leslie added four points and six rebounds, while senior center Albert Jackson added six points and seven boards. Redshirt freshman guard Ebuka Anyaorah saw 19 meaningful minutes, and scored four points to go along with two rebounds and three assists. Shavar Richardson and Raymond Taylor shared the evening's scoring lead for the Owls, each contributing with 12 points apiece.
