MBB: SEC announces 2024-25 conference opponents

Conference play tips off on Saturday, January 4, and runs through Saturday, March 8. Each SEC team plays the other 15 teams at least once during league play. Three teams will be played a second time during the schedule – two which are permanent opponents and one that will change each year.

 

 

 

 

The continuation and renewal of historic rivalries was a point of emphasis when creating the schedule as the SEC welcomes Oklahoma and Texas as new members in 2024-25. Additionally, preexisting home-and-away rotations for single-play opponents were preserved.

The SEC Tournament returns to Nashville, Tenn., as Bridgestone Arena will host the event from March 12-16, 2025.

A record-tying 10 SEC teams received postseason bids. The SEC’s eight NCAA Tournament selections tied its previous best set in 2018. Additionally, two SEC teams competed in the National Invitation Tournament. The SEC has had 35 NCAA Tournament selections over the last five tournaments.

ICYMI: Tre Phelps named the SEC Baseball Player of the Week

Georgia’s Tre Phelps has been named the Southeastern Conference Baseball Player of the Week; the league announced Monday.

Phelps, a 6-2, 204-pound freshman infielder/outfielder from Kennesaw, Ga., tallied an SEC best 19 total bases, four home runs, nine RBI and eight runs scored in helping the Bulldogs sweep No. 14 South Carolina in Columbia last week. Phelps posted a .1.357 slugging percentage and batted .429 (6-for-14) against the Gamecocks.

He smashed a three-run home run in his first at bat of the series to help set the tone as the Bulldogs tallied 39 runs in the sweep and extended their winning streak to eight games. For the year, Phelps is batting .385 with nine home runs and 32 RBI along with a .362 average in SEC action.

In related baseball news, Georgia is a consensus top 10 team in this week’s top 25 polls, checking in at No. 5 in Perfect Game, No. 6 in Baseball America, No. 9 in D1Baseball.com and No. 8 in the USA TODAY Sports Coaches.

The No. 20 Georgia men’s golf team stands in fifth place after the first round of the NCAA Austin Regional, carding an even-par, 284 total on Monday afternoon at the University of Texas Golf Club. 

Five Fast Facts

• Graduate student Connor Creasy paced the team during the first round with a two-under-par result and stands tied for 10th individually. Before a suspension of play due to lightning, Creasy was tied for second at four under. 

• Creasy was one of four Bulldogs to total four birdies during the opening round, joined by graduate Ben van Wyk and junior Buck Brumlow. Four birdies place the trio tied for the 15th most in the field of 75. 

• Georgia also counted an even-par 71 from senior Caleb Manuel and a pair of 72s from Brumlow and van Wyk.

• All four counting scores from the Bulldogs finished the first nine holes even-par or better.

• Georgia is looking to advance to the NCAA Championship for the fifth-straight tournament and 26th time in program history.  

Key Quotes

“We had a solid start but we will need to get back to playing consistently,” head coach Chris Haack said. “We’ll have to recenter our focus and continue concentrating on playing solid golf. We started solid, but we still have two more rounds to play. We’ve got to tee it up again tomorrow and keep making progress.”

Up Next

Georgia will tee off for the second round on hole number 10 at 9 a.m. ET on Tuesday, May 14 alongside BYU and Utah. 

The top five teams from each of the five NCAA regionals will advance to the 30-team NCAA Championships at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, Calif. from May 24-29. The lowest-scoring individual in each regional whose team does not advance will also earn a spot in the NCAA Championships to compete individually.
