Yante Maten and J.J. Frazier spearheaded the Georgia Bulldogs (8-3) to a 60-43 victory over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (6-4) Tuesday night at the McCamish Pavilion in Atlanta.
Junior Forward Maten contributed 16 points and seven rebounds, while senior guard Frazier chipped in 15 points. Both players scored 11 points apiece in the second half to secure Georgia’s first road win of the 2016-17 campaign.
“Hard-fought emotional game,” said Georgia Head Coach Mark Fox. “I thought both teams showed the emotion of the rivalry game pretty early. We played a little sloppy early because of the rivalry game, which that often happens. But I was pleased with our win; we beat an ACC team on the road and a rivalry game. It was certainly a battle, and we are pleased with the win.”
