Georgia Bulldogs Sunday Summary: Top-Ranked Swimming Team Upset in Austin

Here in Bulldog Nation, it’s easy to fixate on football and men’s basketball as the sports in which the Red and Black have disappointed us in 2012, but such a mindset sells short the overall University of Georgia sports program, which has experienced setbacks in a variety of athletic endeavors since the start of the new year. Here is the weekend’s assortment of bad and good news:

Swimming and Diving

In Austin on Saturday, the ninth-ranked Bulldog men’s swimming and diving team fell to the second-ranked Longhorn males, as expected, by a 160-125 margin. The unpleasant surprise of the dual meet in the Lone Star State was the fact that the No. 1-ranked Georgia women’s swimming and diving team lost to fourth-ranked Texas, 155-145. The defeat dropped the Lady Bulldogs to 5-1 and ended an 18-meet winning streak since their last dual-meet loss in 2010. The Georgia women will attempt to rebound in Athens on January 20, when the Red and Black ladies will go for a record-setting 77th consecutive home victory.

Women’s Basketball

Andy Landers’s Lady Bulldogs opened Sunday afternoon’s outing in the so-called Loveliest Village on a 13-0 run as the Georgia women’s basketball team cruised to an easy 70-45 win over Auburn. The Tigers combined for as many turnovers (30) and fouls (15) as they tallied points on an afternoon on which they hit roughly one-quarter of their shots from the field (13 of 48) and from three-point range (3 of 13).

The Athenians, meanwhile, were dominant on the boards (47-34) and effective when shooting field goals (28 of 74) and free throws (11 of 14). Jasmine Hassell and Jasmine James led all Georgia scorers with 14 points apiece as the Lady Bulldogs improved to 2-1 in SEC play.
