The emotionally charged Bulldogs took a 23-22 lead late in the first half after a pair of free throws by Associated Press SEC player of the year Yante Maten, but the edge was short-lived. It remains unclear if the school would accept it following a coaching change.

Fox compiled a 163-133 record with the Bulldogs after taking over the program in 2009.

Tom Crean's absence from the college basketball coaching ranks may only last a year. Current assistant Jonas Hayes is also a possible candidate.

Georgia shot just 28.3 percent from the field, again a season low for the Bulldogs and the lowest percentage this season by a United Kingdom opponent. Georgia finished with a winning or.500 record in all but three of his nine seasons, including double-digit SEC wins three times.

After a long search, Evans hired Fox, who had guided Nevada to three NCAAA tournament appearances during his five years.

Georgia: The Bulldogs saw their NCAA RPI rating climb from 81st to 72nd thanks to wins over Vanderbilt and Missouri over the tournament's first two days.

According to ESPN's Jeff Goodman, Fox is expected to be let go.

United Kingdom held Yante Maten, the Associated Press SEC Player of the Year, to nine points and four rebounds.

United Kingdom had a season-low five turnovers today and is 11-0 this season when committing 11 or fewer miscues. His teams lost in the first round in each of the NCAA Tournament seasons.
