Final: Georgia 77, Arkansas 64

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- It took a while, but Georgia finally has a win this season outside the state of Georgia.

The Bulldogs were 0-11 in true road games and 1-12 in neutral site games, and that one win was in Duluth, Ga.

Maybe they’re starting a new streak after sprinting past Arkansas 77-64 on Thursday in the first round of the SEC tournament.

The more you watch the Bulldogs, the more you’re impressed with them, particularly super sophomores Trey Thompkins and Travis Leslie. Thompkins finished with 23 points and 14 rebounds, his 10th double-double of the season. The high-flying Leslie had 21 points.

The Bulldogs (14-16) were much more active on the boards, as evidenced by their 45-28 rebounding advantage.

The Hogs (14-18) put the wraps on a disappointing season and an even more disappointing close to the season. They lost for the sixth straight time and broke down in the final three or four minutes when Georgia stepped on the gas.
