NEXT UP: St. Louis, Tuesday, 7 p.m.The Game
Friday's game is just the second all-time meeting with Jacksonville State. These two pro¬grams opened the 2007-08 season against one another. Georgia prevailed in Athens on Nov. 9, 2007 by a 107-65 score. It was the last time Georgia scored 100 points in a game. Two other notes from that contest...Just two Georgia participants from that game remain on the current roster: Chris Barnes and Jeremy Price. Barnes scored 14 points in the game, a total that still stands as his career high.
This and that
Ricky McPhee's 20 points on Tuesday vs. UNC Asheville marked his best total as a Georgia player. It was the fourth time scoring 20 or more as a collegian. McPhee did it three times while playing two seasons (2006-07) at Gardner-Webb, including 21 in his first college game at North Carolina....Junior post player Jeemy Price is the leading career scorer among all cur¬rent Bulldogs with 458 points (6.8 ppg). It seems inevitable, however, that sophomore Trey Thompkins will soon pass him. Play¬ing just his 33rd collegiate game tonight, the Lithonia native surpassed the 400-point mark against UNC Asheville on Tuesday... Price in this young season has exhibited some of the same play that won his Fresh¬man All-SEC honors in 2008. He's already scored in double figures twice, something he did five times in all of 2009....Thompkins has already established career highs in both scoring (25 vs. New Orleans) and rebounding (16 vs. Wofford) in this young season. Teammates that set per¬sonal highs in the first two games include Barnes (11 rebs. vs. UNO), Travis Leslie (5 asts, 34 min. vs. Wofford), and Drazen Zlovaric (25 min. vs. UNO).
