    ATHENS, Ga. -- Trey Thompkins scored 15 points to lead Georgia to a 68-59 win over Arkansas State on Saturday.

    Travis Leslie added 14 points and a team-high eight rebounds, while Chris Barnes scored a season-high 12 for the Bulldogs (7-2).

    Donald Boone scored 14 for Arkansas State (3-7), and Rashad Allison scored 12.

    The Red Wolves closed the margin to 25-24 with 7:54 remaining in the first half on a basket by Malcoln Kirkland, but Arkansas State would never pull ahead. Georgia answered with an 11-1 run en route to a 36-27 halftime lead.

    The Bulldog's biggest lead of the game came with 11:55 to go on a layup by Leslie to make it 55-34.

    Georgia was very efficient in the first eight minutes of the game, scoring on its first seven possessions and on 12 of its first 14 to take a 23-15 lead.
