Georgia Basketball Schedule Loaded With Challenges

New, 14 comments
Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The full SEC basketball schedule is out and the Georgia Bulldogs ended up with a pretty tough draw. The Fox Hounds will not reprise last season's classic matchup with Kentucky at Stegeman Coliseum. However the 'Dawgs will get the pleasure of traveling to Lexington to take on the 'Cats in Rupp Arena. Georgia will also face permanent opponents South Carolina and Auburn twice, which isn't the worst possible draw. However the Hoop Hounds also drew two game series with Ole Miss and Missouri this season, both of whom should be solid squads this season. Here's the full schedule, including both conference and non-conference contests.

Nov. 13: Chattanooga
Nov. 20: Murray State
Nov. 25: High Point
Nov. 28: at Seton Hall
Dec. 1: Oakland
Dec. 4: Kansas State
Dec. 8: Winthrop
Dec. 19: Georgia Tech
Dec. 22: Clemson
Dec. 29: Robert Morris
Jan. 2: at Florida
Jan. 6: Missouri
Jan. 9: at Ole Miss
Jan. 13: Tennessee
Jan. 16: Texas A&M
Jan. 20: at Missouri
Jan. 23: Arkansas
Jan. 26: at LSU

Jan. 30: at Baylor
Feb. 2: South Carolina
Feb. 6: Auburn
Feb. 9: at Kentucky
Feb. 13: at Mississippi State
Feb. 16: Florida
Feb. 20: at Vanderbilt
Feb. 24: at Auburn
Feb. 27: Ole Miss
March 3: at South Carolina
March 5: Alabama

For those scoring at home, that's nine games against teams from last season's Big Dance in a twenty-nine game schedule. Not to mention that the 'Dawgs get Florida in Gainesville and Vanderbilt in that decrepit monstrosity where the Commodores play their home games. All told, it looks like a stiff challenge for a veteran Bulldog squad looking to repeat its tournament-level performance last season. Until later...

Go 'Dawgs!!!
