WBB: UGA meets North Florida today at noon

Opening Tip Storylines

» Georgia returns to Stegeman Coliseum to host the North Florida Ospreys at noon ET Wednesday. Fans can watch the action on SEC Network + or listen to the voice of the Lady Bulldogs, Jeff Dantzler, on the Georgia Bulldog Sports Network. 

 

 

 

 

» This is the second all-time meeting between these two programs. Georgia defeated North Florida 75-37 in Athens on Dec. 28, 2017. 

» The Lady Bulldogs came in at No. 14 in the first NET rankings that were released this past Monday. Georgia is the third-highest ranked SEC team, coming in behind No. 1 South Carolina and No. 13 Tennessee. The NCAA Evaluation Tool (NET) replaced the RPI rankings as the primary way to evaluate teams for the NCAA tournament. 

» Wednesday’s game is the final contest before Georgia takes an eight-day exam break. The Lady Bulldogs will travel to No. 2 NC State on Dec. 16. 

 

 

 

 

» Graduate guard Que Morrison — one of the top defensive players in the nation — continues to step it up offensively. She has led Georgia in each of the last two games, totaling 35 points, nine rebounds, eight assists, and four steals in matchups against Texas Tech and Georgia Tech. 

» Morrison became the 42nd Lady Bulldog in program history to reach the 1,000-point mark with her basket in the third period against Georgia Tech. 

» Georgia has held seven of eight opponents below 40 percent shooting from the field. The Lady Bulldogs rank second in the SEC in scoring defense (50.2 ppg) and third in turnovers forced (20.5 per game) this season. 

» Texas Tech and Notre Dame are the only teams to score 60 or more points against the Lady Bulldogs this season. If you look back to last year, Georgia has held eight of its last 10 opponents below the 60-point mark. 

» For the second-straight season, each of Georgia’s seniors have already earned their college degrees. Malury Bates (sociology), Mikayla Coombs (sport management), Morrison (communication studies), and Jenna Staiti (human development and family science) have all graduated from the University of Georgia.
