Tom Crean’s Georgia Bulldogs will face the Hornets of Delaware State in Stegeman Coliseum tonight at 7:00 PM.
After eclipsing the 90-point mark in their first two games, the Hoop Hounds will look to continue their efficient work on the offensive side of the ball. So far this season, the Dawgs have only turned the ball over on 14% of their offensive possessions. That number is good enough for the 29th-lowest mark in the country, an encouraging sign after sloppy ball handling plagued the Dawgs in Crean’s first season at the helm. The Hornets have turned the ball over on 23.6% of possessions, and if that number holds true the Bulldogs will have a good chance at coming away with the victory.
Georgia is lead by future NBA Lottery pick Anthony Edwards and his 26.5 points per game. With 3.5 steals per game, the true freshman is getting it done on the defensive end of the floor as well. Delaware State’s scoring attack is lead by John Stansbury. Stansbury has put up 14.5 points and 5.5 assists per game in the Hornets’ first two contests, a 81-54 loss to Rider and a 85-74 loss to Manhattan.
The Bulldogs have a team full of freshman and transfers who are still learning how to play as a unit. The Delaware State contest gives Crean one more chance to get his young team some game experience before the team ends November against Georgia Tech and Dayton in contests that could be key to Georgia’s NCAA Tournament Resume come March.
The game will be aired on TV by SEC Network+ and can be streamed through the ESPN App. Live audio stream is available here.
