Gerald Robinson scored a career-high 27 points and Georgia ended a four-game losing streak by beating Arkansas 81-59 on Wednesday night to keep the Razorbacks winless on the road. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had 18 points as Georgia (11-12, 2-7 Southeastern Conference) won its first game since beating Tennessee in overtime on Jan. 18. The Bulldogs took the lead by scoring 15 unanswered points in the first half and added a 12-0 run in the second half. Georgia, which had been held under 70 points in its first eight conference games, made nine 3-pointers. Arkansas (16-8, 4-5) fell to 0-7 on the road, including 0-5 away from Fayetteville in SEC games. BJ Young led Arkansas with 16 points. Mardracus Wade made five 3-pointers and had 15 points for the Razorbacks, who have lost two straight and three of four. Nemanja Djurisic had 14 points and Marcus Thornton added 10 for the Bulldogs. Robinson, a senior, scored Georgia's first six points and easily topped his previous career high of 22 points. Georgia, last in the league with its average of 56.2 points in SEC games, set a season high for points in a first half by leading 43-24 at the break. The Bulldogs pulled away by scoring 15 straight points following an 8-8 tie, and they kept the lead in double figures the rest of the half. Georgia made five 3-pointers in the half, including three by Caldwell-Pope. Arkansas, frustrated by missed layups, made only 6 of 23 shots from the field and was outrebounded 25-10 in the half. Thornton, who had been held without a field goal in five straight games since missing five games following arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, ended his drought by sinking a 3-pointer midway through the first half. Thornton beat the shot clock with another 3 in the second half. Arkansas senior forward Michael Sanchez left with an apparent right shoulder injury with 11:13 remaining. He was escorted to the locker room and returned to the bench with ice wrapped around the shoulder. Georgia finished with a 44-21 advantage in rebounds.
