ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Tom Crean has had a busy week.
He was inducted into the Marquette sports hall of fame and notched his first Southeastern Conference win of the season, all amid the backdrop of social media criticism and questions about his future as Georgia's men's basketball coach.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Aaron Cook scored 22 points to surpass 1,000 in his career and sparked Georgia to a 76-60 victory over South Carolina State on Tuesday night.
Cook, who came into the game eight points shy of the milestone, knocked down a 3-pointer in the first minute of the game and had seven points in the Bulldogs' 17-6 run to open the contest.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Hayden Koval buried a dagger of a 3-pointer from the top of the key, Jeremiah Davenport drove for a layup with just over a minute remaining and Cincinnati turned back a Georgia rally for a 73-68 win on Saturday night.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — David Gale has joined Georgia coach Tom Crean's staff as associate to the head coach and director of basketball strategy.
Gale was named to Crean's staff on Monday, one day before Georgia opens its season against Florida International.
Southeastern Conference media gave Georgia coach Tom Crean an easy motivational tool when they predicted the league's finish.
Crean now can tell his players they are viewed as the worst team in the league.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Senior forward P.J. Horne, Georgia's only returning starter, will miss the 2021-22 season after suffering a knee injury in practice.
Georgia coach Tom Crean said Wednesday on Twitter that Horne had season-ending surgery on his right knee last weekend.
Georgia isn't considered a basketball school. Tom Crean is trying to change that in his first year as the Bulldogs' coach, but this embarrassment could set them back.
Georgia lost to Mississippi State 68-67 Wednesday when a fan apparently threw a stuffed toy bulldog onto the court in the final second of the game, with Mississippi State already at the free throw line and the game tied at 67.
