Opening Tip

» Georgia heads to Kentucky on Sunday to face the Wildcats at 3 p.m. ET live on the SEC Network.

» The Lady Bulldogs have won two of their last three conference games, with the only loss coming to No. 5 South Carolina on Thursday. Georgia was up by two, 55-53, with just under five minutes to go thanks to a Caliya Robinson 3-point basket. After South Carolina retook the lead, Georgia had a chance to tie it late before USC pulled away for the 66-63 win.

» Georgia held the fifth-ranked Gamecocks to their second-lowest point total (66 points) and field-goal percentage (36.7%) of the season. The Lady Bulldogs have held 12 of 17 opponents to 40-percent or lower shooting this season, owning a 10-2 record in those games.

» Pachis Roberts has been the leader for the Lady Bulldogs in SEC play. Roberts paces the team in both points and rebounds over the last four games, averaging 14.8 points and 7.3 boards against league teams. 

» Freshman Stephanie Paul has upped her contributions over the last few weeks. The Naples, Fla., native averaged just 2.2 points per contest through the first 14 games, but has increased that number to 9.5 ppg in the past two matchups.

» Georgia has dominated the series against Kentucky, owning a 36-16 advantage. The Wildcats have won four of the last six meetings between the two programs, with the Lady Bulldogs’ last win in Lexington coming in 2013 — a 75-71 victory against then-No. 10-ranked Kentucky.
