2 UNDEFEATED teams (in conference) meet at historic Stegman Coliseum. UGA comes off an emotional win at Missouri while we come off a solid win at home vs Vanderbilt.
It's 7-7 @ 7-6 with Vegas saying we are a 2 point favorite. I figured UGA would be a 1 to 2 pt favorite, but Vegas usually knows what they are doing, right?
UGA's only bad loss was at home to GA Tech although they pulled an 0fer in the Charleston Classic.
Charles Mann is leading the team with 13.4 PPG and 35 assists. From the outside watch Kenny Gaines (50 3Pters taken) but note he's been a brick master at 24%. Nemanja Djurisic is actually one to watch outside as he's hitting 56% from there. He's a 6'9" F that comes off the bench and plays starter minutes. Donte' Williams leads the team in boards at 5.2 while Brandon Morris drops 9.6 PPG.
UGA is a relatively young team... 3 sophomores getting a lot of PT.
Things to watch:
- Battle on the boards- UGA has a +4 average coming into the game
- Who covers Djursic?
- Who supports Releford today?
- Which Nick Jacobs shows up?
As DJC said earlier, the blog will be well represented at the game as I'll be making the trip to Athens. I hope to see a couple hundred more Bama fans there. If you are in the metro Atlanta area, come support the team as tickets are just $15 behind the basket. I usually buy tickets through the UGA website.
Game time is 4PM EST (3PM CST) on SEC TV and ESPN3.com (watchespn).
