UGA v Hoops Preview + Bama and Auburn Face Off in SEC Game of the Day
Georgia hosts Kentucky at noon. Wildcats are ranked just 40th in Ken Pomeroy and come in with a 16-8 overall and 7-4 in SEC. Beating UGA won't bolster their bubble resume, but losing would put it on life support. They are led by Oscar Tshiebwe (15.5 Pts, 13.3 Reb, 1.5 Ast) who torched the Bulldogs at Rupp for 37 points on 12 of 20 shooting. Kentucky is shooting 47% on the season and 44% in league play which ranks second in SEC.
Georgia has become reliant on the 3 shooting 147 over the last 4 games but making less than 20% of attempts. Terry Roberts (15.0 Pts, 4.0 Reb, 4.2 Ast) practiced on Friday and his return would significantly enhance upset chances. Kario Oquendo will look to build on his game from Tuesday when he scored 19 in the 4 point loss to Ole Miss. He had a tough stretch of games, but if Roberts and Oquendo are on the floor playing well, then Georgia can be threat on Saturday and in the SEC tourney.
A little Bonus for the die hard SEC hoops fans. Auburn hosts Bama in what is sure to be a wild atmosphere at 2 PM Saturday.
