Nicolas Claxton led all scorers with 20 points while Rayshaun Hammonds followed closely with 18.  The Dawgs did nothing extravagant in the second half but were able to maintain their lead and prevent UMass from every really threatening.

Stars of the game were Claxton, Hammonds, Tyree Crump, and Derek Ogbeide.

The big-names for Georgia helped pace the Bulldogs to a solid victory in Athens Sunday and stretch the winning streak to three.  The Dawgs have also won five of their last six games now, dating back to the Georgia State loss in the Caymans.

Up next for Georgia is No. 3 Tennessee (11-1) on Saturday in Knoxville.  The Volunteers are the top-ranked team in the SEC heading into conference play.

Georgia (8-4) will be no small task for the Vols.
