Dawgs grasping for postseason

Following a 67-49 loss in Oxford Wednesday night, the Georgia Bulldogs (16-10, 7-6) NCAA Tournament bubble is on the verge of bursting. Georgia needs four wins to reach the 20-win mark that generally assures a NCAA Tournament bid.

Georgia shot only 32.8 percent from the field, which was their worst offensive performance this season. Georgia trailed by seven at the half, but they could not buy a basket in the second half. Georgia hit only five field goals in the second half (5-19 FGs) which is 19.2 percent.

Senior guard Levi Stukes hit only three of his 12 field goal attempts in the game and sophomore Billy Humphrey went two for nine from the floor.

The Bulldogs face the other Bulldogs from Mississippi State on Saturday at 1 p.m. EST in Athens.
