Georgia enters the game after beating Georgia Tech, 60-53, on Sunday. The win against the then-9-1 Yellow Jackets improved the Lady Bulldogs’ record against Tech in Athens to 16-0 all-time.
Senior forward Mackenzie Engram is Georgia’s leading scorer and rebounder this season. Engram has scored in double figures in nine of 10 games and has already matched her double-double total from a season ago with two this year.
The Lady Bulldogs relied on a pair of freshmen guards down the stretch against Georgia Tech. Que Morrison and Gabby Connally were on the floor for most of the fourth quarter, with Connally playing eight minutes and Morrison adding seven minutes.
