Opening Tip

The Lady Bulldogs are back on the road for the second-straight game with a trip to Lexington, Ky., to face the Kentucky Wildcats at 2 p.m. ET Sunday. The contest will air on SEC Network +.


Georgia is 5-0 on the road this season following Thursday’s 81-52 victory at Vanderbilt.


The Lady Bulldogs have lost four consecutive games to Kentucky and have not won in Lexington since Feb. 3, 2013.


Head coach Joni Taylor picked up the 50th win of her head coaching career Thursday evening. Taylor owns a 50-27 (.649) career record since being named head coach in 2015.


Georgia has prided itself on defense during Taylor’s tenure and that was no more evident than in the last game against Vanderbilt. The Lady Bulldogs forced the Commodores into a season-high 28 turnovers, while the 52 points scored were the lowest by Vanderbilt this season. The win also came by the largest margin of victory against the Commodores in Nashville since the two teams began playing in 1979.


Led by redshirt-sophomore and newcomer Taja Cole, Georgia ranks second in the Southeastern Conference in assists with 17.9 per game. Cole is averaging 4.1 per contest, which is the fourth-best average in the league. The Richmond, Va., native has recorded three or more assists in 14 of 15 games this season.


Sophomore guard Stephanie Paul is coming off a career-high 18 point game. Paul, usually one of the first players off the bench for the Lady Bulldogs, has helped the Georgia bench outscore its opponents by nearly 15 points per game this season.
