Dawgs Get First SEC Victory

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Terrance Woodbury scored a career-high 32
points to help Georgia end an 11-game losing streak and deal a blow
to Florida's hopes in the SEC's Eastern Division in the Bulldogs'
88-86 upset victory on Saturday.

Erving Walker and Walter Hodge missed shots in the final seconds
for the Gators, allowing Georgia to avoid its first 12-game stretch
of consecutive defeats since 1951-52.

Woodbury scored 20 points in the first half on 7-for-7 shooting and 5-for-5 on 3-pointers.

The Bulldogs (10-15, 1-9 Southeastern Conference) led by 14 points three times in the first half, but Florida took its first lead with 8:03 left in the game when Ray Shipman's two free throws made it 77-76.

Florida (19-6, 6-4) missed a chance to stay even with Kentucky, a 79-63 winner Saturday at Arkansas, in the SEC East.
