Georgia hits the road Tuesday night carrying a four-game winning streak into Tennessee for this season's lone matchup with the Volunteers.
Georgia stands at 14-10 overall and is 8-4 in the conference and in sole possession of third place after Saturday's 61-60 win over Ole Miss. The Bulldogs came from behind late thanks to 21 points from Kenny Gaines and a clutch free throw from Charles Mann with just 1.5 remaining.
Georgia is trying to nail down a Top 4 seed in the SEC Tournament and has an eye on postseason play thanks to their current winning streak. The Bulldogs currently lead the Volunteers by two games in the SEC standings and a win on Tuesday would give them the tie breaker.
Tennessee checks in at 15-10 overall and 6-6 in conference play. The Volunteers dropped their second straight on Saturday 75-70 in Missouri and have lost three of their last four. By most accounts Tennessee's season has been a disappointment given that they were expected by some to compete with Florida and Kentucky for the conference lead.
They still possess a talented roster led by Jordan McRae and Jarnell Stokes. McRae is among the conference leaders in scoring averaging 19.6 per game while Stokes is averaging a double-double at 14.2 points and 10.2 rebounds.
Historically Georgia has struggled against Tennessee who leads the series by a wide margin. However, the Bulldogs have gone 5-3 against the Vols under Mark Fox and swept both meetings last season.
