The Georgia women’s basketball team hosts LSU today at Stegeman Coliseum for a 2:00 p.m. ET tipoff for a ‘Pink Out’ game.
THE OPENING TIP
Today marks the Lady Bulldogs’ Pink Out game, with fans encouraged to wear pink in honor of breast cancer awareness and the Play4Kay Foundation. The first 750 fans will receive a free Kelly and Coco Miller bobblehead, while the first 1,000 fans will be given a free pink t-shirt.
The Lady Bulldogs will also honor their three seniors — Shanea Armbrister, Pachis Roberts and Halle Washington — during a special presentation, which is scheduled to occur around 20 minutes before opening tip.
Georgia enters the game following yet another close matchup with a top-5 team. The Lady Bulldogs led third-ranked Mississippi State for over 30 minutes, but watched MSU pull away late for the 58-49 win.
The 58 points scored by Mississippi State matched the team’s season low. Georgia held fifth-ranked South Carolina to 62 points on Jan. 26 — the Gamecocks’ second-lowest scoring total this season.
Sunday’s meeting marks the 45th matchup all-time between the Lady Bulldogs and LSU. Georgia leads the series, 24-20, after the two split a pair of games last season. UGA’s win at LSU a year ago was the team’s first in Baton Rouge since 2001.
