5-Star OG Jamaree Salyer Commits To Georgia Over Clemson, Florida

5-Star OG Jamaree Salyer Commits To Georgia Over Clemson, Florida”

After an unsettling road loss to UMass last Saturday, Georgia came into its prime-time game against Georgia Tech on Tuesday desperately seeking a boost. Georgia's elite recruiting under Kirby Smart has started inside the state, and that's huge.

"What a great night for Georgia", said coach Mark Fox, who moves to 5-4 against Georgia Tech. "He has a great personality, he is a great teacher and we have really connected". "It was a attractive night of college basketball".

Josh Okogie led the Yellow Jackets with 21 points before fouling out late in the game.

With Maten leading the way, Georgia has launched its own winning streak in the rivalry. The Bulldogs, who tallied 17 assists compared to only five by Georgia Tech, were balanced with six players scoring at least eight points.

Georgia has now won three consecutive games over the Yellow Jackets and have posted double-digit victories over Georgia Tech for the first time since the 1912-14 seasons. Tipoff is scheduled for 9 p.m.

Outscoring the Yellow Jackets 13-3 at the beginning of the half proved to be the difference.

But Maten hit a jumper on the next trip down the court, igniting a 9-1 run over the next 2:27 to push the Bulldogs' lead back into double digits for good, highlighting a relentless effort down the stretch. Tadric Jackson had 17 points and Jose Alvarado added 12.

"What was important to us was that we played together", Fox said. "We figured out what they were adjusting to and we played hard, keeping the energy going".

Georgia Tech actually outshot UGA slightly in the first half, shooting 50 percent to their 48.3, but still faced a two-point deficit after committing eight costly first-half turnovers. They just kicked our butts in the second half. "I felt like they punched us in the mouth and kept punching us".

Freshman Rayshaun Hammonds added 11 points as Georgia's only other scorer in double figures. "I've just got to be able to convert the plays that I missed (Tuesday)". "In high school, I played in front of a lot of big crowds so it was like another game to me".

But in the second half, Georgia continued the defensive job it had been doing all evening on Lammers, who finished just 2 of 10 from the floor and was held nine points below his season average with just four points, and applied to all the way around. There was no lack of consistency moving from the starters to the bench. That balance really helped.

"We have a deep team, that's one of the strengths of our team", said Fox. "We now have guys who are playing off Yante and getting their own shot because Yante draws so much attention".
