The Georgia Bulldogs come into Rupp Arena tonight, as Kentucky looks to build off its momentum from Saturday’s win in Knoxville over Tennessee.
This is no cakewalk for Kentucky, as the Bulldogs, under first-year coach Mike White, enter with a record of 13-4. While much of that came against a lackluster non-conference schedule, Georgia does have home wins over Auburn and Mississippi State on its resume, along with a road win over Ole Miss.
The Bulldogs are 3-1 in conference play and are led by guards Terry Roberts (15.6 ppg, 4.2 apg) and Kario Oquendo (13.1 ppg).
This Georgia team’s numbers don’t jump out on paper, but as the South Carolina game just a week ago showed, the Cats have to be locked in no matter who is coming into town.
If you’re Kentucky, you’re in a pivotal stretch of games where you’ll likely be favored in the next three before hosting Kansas. It’s important that Kentucky comes in and plays to their ability against a Georgia team that certainly has an upset on its mind.
Tonight’s going to be a late one, with tip-off scheduled for 9 pm ET at Rupp Arena, so plan accordingly and go Cats!
