UGA Basketball Calms the Crimson Tide

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) _ One year after blowing a big lead in a loss
to Alabama, Georgia gave its fans another scare Wednesday night before recovering to beat the Crimson Tide 61-54.
Billy Humphrey, who hit a key late 3-pointer, led the Bulldogs
with 13 points. Freshman Jeremy Price added 11.
Georgia (10-5 overall, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) never
trailed while building leads of 15 points in each half. But the
Bulldogs saw Alabama close to within four points with 1:42 left
before they recovered with six straight points, including a
3-pointer and two free throws by Humphrey.
Georgia lost 78-76 at Alabama last season after leading by 15 at
Alabama (11-7) is 0-3 in SEC games for the first time since
1998-99, when the Crimson Tide lost its first four conference games
in coach Mark Gottfried's first season.
Richard Hendrix led Alabama with 19 points but made only 3 of 9
free throws. Mykal Riley and Brandon Hollinger each added 10.
