ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Trey Thompkins scored 15 points to lead
Georgia to a 68-59 win over Arkansas State on Saturday.
Travis Leslie added 14 points and a team-high eight rebounds,
while Chris Barnes scored a season-high 12 for the Bulldogs (7-2).
Donald Boone scored 14 for Arkansas State (3-7), and Rashad
Allison scored 12.
The Red Wolves closed the margin to 25-24 with 7:54 remaining in
the first half on a basket by Malcoln Kirkland, but Arkansas State
would never pull ahead. Georgia answered with an 11-1 run en route
to a 36-27 halftime lead.

a layup by Leslie to make it 55-34.
Georgia was very efficient in the first eight minutes of the
game, scoring on its first seven possessions and on 12 of its first
14 to take a 23-15 lead.
