Georgia basketball falls short in high-scoring “Sunshine Slam” championship

ATHENS – Georgia’s offense had one of its most explosive halves yet, but could not keep up with UAB down the stretch in the Beach Bracket championship game of the “Sunshine Slam” tournament.

UGA coach Mike White knew it would take a strong, full 40-minute performance to beat a UAB team that finished second in the Conference USA a year ago. White’s squad actually led 42-41 at halftime after electric first half performances from Justin Hill and Braelen Bridges.

UGA shot 20-of-38 from the field in the first 20 minutes, but a 10-2 Blazer run to open the second half put them behind for the rest of the contest.
