ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Sahvir Wheeler scored 16 points and Toumani Camara’s late block helped send Georgia past feisty Vanderbilt 73-70 on Saturday.
The win for Georgia (12-6, 5-6 Southeastern Conference) marks its first three-game winning streak in three seasons under head coach Tom Crean.
Scotty Pippen Jr.’s layup off a sweet spin move in the lane knotted it at 70 with 44 seconds to go. After getting fouled, Camara made 1 of 2 foul shots with 15 seconds left for a one-point Bulldogs lead.
Again, Vanderbilt put the ball in Pippen’s hands and he drove the lane. This time, Camara provided help on defense and smacked Pippen’s shot off the backboard.
