So with Thanksgiving upon us, that means final exams are right around the corner for fall semester. That also means most fall sports are done with their seasons, and we hit a lull in the University of Georgia sports schedule until things start back up again for the spring semester starting in January. That ultimately means we've got nothing but basketball on tap until 2017, aside from a swim meet this weekend and a sneak peak for gymnastics in mid December (Friday the 16th, at 6 p.m.in Stegeman for those who would like to attend the event). Oh, and a bowl game since we weren't good enough to wait until the new year for that to happen. That being said...
The Net Dawgs fell to Mississippi St in their season finale last weekend and Missouri in their home finale last Wednesday. That brings their season record to 13-18, 1-17 in conference, which is a big improvement over the 5-25 (0-18) record from a year ago, but that's not exactly saying much now is it?
The recap for their fall campaign is up.
SWIMMING AND DIVING
As mentioned above, the only game in town besides basketball right now is in the pool. The UGA Fall Invitational will be this weekend in Gabrielsen Natatorium as Water Dawgs compete against student-athletes from Auburn, Cal, Harvard, FSU, Michigan, UCLA, and Virginia. They will be held all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, with admission free.
The Lady Dawgs spent the Thanksgiving holidays in the Bahamas, splitting games with Minnesota and South Florida. Last night's dominating victory over Kennesaw St moved their record to 5-2 on the season as they get ready for an SEC/Big 12 Challenge tilt with Oklahoma State Saturday evening at 8. The next home game for Joni Taylor's team is Monday the 5th vs. Furman.
The men will be on the floor tonight, taking on Morehouse at 7 in Stegeman. The 4-2 Hoop Dawgs won't have this game reflected in their RPI come March, but it will show in the won/loss ledger and provides a good chance to get some of the supporting cast work while stars Yante Maten and JJ Frazier relax. The Dawgs easily took care of Gardner-Webb on Friday night following a hard fought loss to Kansas last week. They follow up tonight's contest with the Maroon Tigers with a big game against Marquette.in Athens Sunday at 2 (on ESPNU). Then it's off for the final exam break.
Winter is here, and GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DAWGS!
