ATHENS, Ga. -- Gerald Robinson Jr. scored 21 points and Georgia overcame poor free-throw shooting to edge Colorado 83-74 on Tuesday night.

Georgia won despite making only 27 of 43 free throws and blowing a first-half lead of 17 points.

Georgia led only 72-70 when Robinson scored on a layup to push the lead to four points with 1:32 remaining. After a turnover by Colorado, Dustin Ware made two free throws for a 76-70 lead.

Travis Leslie had 19 points before fouling out for Georgia (2-0). Jeremy Price had 17.

Georgia continues to play without Trey Thompkins, the team's leading scorer and rebounder last season who is recovering from a high ankle sprain.

Alec Burks had 23 points for Colorado (1-1), which suffered its first loss under first-year coach Tad Boyle. Cory Higgins added 15 points.

Georgia led 56-49 when Price went to the bench with four fouls. Georgia coach Mark Fox was forced to bring Price back 3 minutes later after Colorado took a 60-59 lead.

Fouls hurt Georgia again when the Bulldogs, leading 68-64, had Leslie foul out. Price responded with a quick basket to help Georgia retain its momentum.

Connor Nolte, Robinson and Leslie had 3-pointers in an early 13-0 run to give Georgia a 16-4 lead.

The Bulldogs stretched the lead to 17 points but collapsed after leading 31-14. Georgia's barrage of fouls, missed free throws and turnovers helped the Buffaloes close the half with a 19-2 run for a 33-33 halftime tie.

Leslie missed an attempt at an open one-handed breakaway jam during the Colorado run, the ball bouncing off the back of the rim out of bounds.

Nate Tomlinson and Levi Knutson completed the Colorado comeback with 3-pointers in the final minute of the half. Colorado scored 15 points off Georgia's 13 turnovers in the half.

Boyle was called for a technical foul with 9.9 seconds remaining when Higgins was called for his fifth foul.
