LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) -- Trey Thompkins had 18 points and
eight rebounds, Gerald Robinson scored 13 and Georgia rallied to
beat Manhattan 61-58 on Sunday in the consolation bracket of the
Old Spice Classic.
Travis Leslie added 13 points and 11 rebounds to help the
Bulldogs (4-2) squeek out a win against an inferior opponent and
avoid being the only team in the tournament without a victory.
That designation was left to the Jaspers.
Kidani Brutus brought Manhattan (2-4) within two on a 3-pointer
with 11.8 seconds remaining. Leslie missed a second free throw that
would have put the game out of reach, but Thompkins blocked Brutus'
3-point attempt in the final seconds to seal Georgia's victory.
