Nashville, TN (AP) - John Jenkins and Festus Ezeli scored 18
points apiece and Vanderbilt beat No. 24 Georgia 73-66 on Wednesday
night to snap the Bulldogs' nine-game winning streak and ruin their
first game back in the Top 25 since the end of the 2003 season.
The Commodores (12-3, 1-1) bounced back after opening
Southeastern Conference play with an overtime loss at South
Carolina that knocked them out of the rankings. They took the lead
from the start and never trailed while improving to 52-13 against
the Bulldogs at home.
Georgia (12-3, 1-1) never got closer than three in the second
half. Travis Leslie led the Bulldogs with 21 points, Gerald
Robinson added 20 and Trey Thompkins had 13.
Jeffery Taylor had 15 points for Vandy. Ezeli had a
double-double, also grabbing 10 rebounds.
