The Bulldogs and Jackets last met on Nov. 20, 2019, with Georgia earning an 82-78 victory. Last season’s matchup was canceled due to scheduling conflicts related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the first season since the 1923-24 campaign.

Georgia head coach Tom Crean enters the game with 399 career victories – 190 at Marquette, 166 at Indiana, and 43 at UGA.
The Bulldogs are in the midst of a five-game winning streak over Tech, their second-longest streak of success against the Jackets. Georgia’s longest winning streak in the series is seven games twice (from 1908-21 and 1980-85), followed by five W’s thrice (from 1929-31, 1939-41, and 2015-present).
