Sahvir Wheeler records first triple-double in Georgia history as Bulldogs hold big lead over LSU
Sahvir Wheeler has been the leader of the Georgia men’s basketball team all year. He has recorded several points-assists double-doubles.
But, as one of the smallest guys on the court, he hasn’t really been a threat as a rebounder. Well, that all changed on Tuesday night against LSU.
The Bulldogs have been dominating the Tigers all night, and the 5-10 guard has been electric. Before the halfway point of the second half, Wheeler had recorded the first triple-double in Georgia history.
He recorded his 10th assist on this wacky alley-oop pass to KD Johnson, who had a bit of trouble finishing off the dunk:
Right now for Wheeler: 12 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists

At the point he recorded the triple-double, he had 12 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds. There’s still plenty of game time left, but with Georgia holding a big lead, we’ll see how long Wheeler stays on the court to add to his numbers.
