The Titans came up short Thanksgiving night, falling to the Georgia Bulldogs 64-57 on the opening day of the Wooden Legacy Tournament at Titan Gym.
The Titans got a career-night from junior guard Kyle Allman, who scored 34-points, including 14 in the first half.
Despite the career-high from Allman, he was the only Titan to score in double-figures, with Jackson Rowe the runner-up with only seven points.
The game looked promising from the start, as the Titans took the lead in the early seconds and held onto it for most of the game. Their defense smothered the Bulldogs in the first half, forcing 11 turnovers to help them take a 27-21 lead into the half. However, with the lack of production from anyone besides Allman, the Titans had a hard-time pulling away from the Bulldogs.
Georgia came out in the second half with more focus and took advantage of the Titans’ lack of offense. With 9:40 left in the second half, the Bulldogs took the lead 40-39 and never looked back.
The Titans look to bounce back on Friday, as they take on Sacramento State at 6:30 on day two of the Wooden Legacy.
