The Georgia Bulldogs fought hard, but lost a heartbreaker in their SEC opener against the Texas A&M Aggies. Georgia took their first lead of the game after Kario Oquendo made a free throw with five seconds left.

Then, Texas A&M guard Marcus Williams dribbled up the court and hit a three-pointer with under one second remaining. Additional time was added to the clock, but Georgia was unable to respond to Williams’ last second shot.

The win moves Texas A&M to 12-2. Georgia basketball falls to 5-9 on the season. Head coach Tom Crean and Georgia showed resilience to battle back after trailing by 12 at halftime. The Dawgs outscored the Aggies 45-35 in the second half, but it was not enough.

Kario Oquendo scored 21 points to lead UGA in scoring. Noah Baumann, a USC transfer, added 19 points for the Dawgs. Texas A&M guard Henry Coleman III shot efficiently on his way to a team-high 23 points.
