Georgia beats South Dakota State 72-61 in Progressive CBE Classic
Sophomore Donte Robinson scored 17 points to lead the Georgia Bulldogs over the South Dakota State Jackrabbits in the second round of the 2011 Progressive CBE Classic.
The win wasn’t as easy as it appeared on the scoreboard, however. South Dakota State led by seven points in each half, but the Hoop Dawgs finally pulled away in the second.
Gerald Robinson scored 15 points while freshman Kentavious Caldwell-Pope added 14. It was Caldwell-Pope’s third consecutive game scoring in double-figures.
Freshman forward Nemanja Djurisic came off the bench to score 14 points and pulled down five rebounds.
After opening ice cold, Georgia managed to recover and ended shooting 40.3%. The Dawgs were awful from behind the three-point arc, shooting a paltry 20.7%.
Georgia now stands at 3-0 on the season and moves on to the 2011 Progressive CBE Classic Semifinals in Kansas City, MO. The Bulldogs will face #22 California on Monday, Nov. 21 at 9:30 p.m. ET (ESPN2).
The following day, Georgia will face either #25 Missouri or Notre Dame in the championship or consolation game.
