Game #14: Georgia Bulldogs

On Saturday, December 21st, the Catamounts travel to Athens, Georgia to play the Georgia Bulldogs in a 2:00 pm game in the Stegeman Coliseum on the campus of the University of Georgia. The game can be seen on CSS and ESPN3.

Head Coach Mark Fox's Bulldogs are 5-4 overall on the season, and are 5-1 at home. The Bulldogs have wins over three SoCon teams this season, Wofford, Appalachian State, and Chattanooga, with only Davidson beating the Dogs in the Charleston Classic.

As a team, Georgia is averaging 76.6 points per game, shooting 40% field goals, while hitting 66% of their free throws.  The Bulldogs have four players currently scoring in double figures.  Sophomore guard Charles Mann (6-5, 210) leads the Dogs in scoring with 14/3 ppg, followed by sophomore guard Kenny Gaines (6-3, 195) with 12.4 points, junior forward Nemanji  Djurisic (6-8, 230) with 12.00 ppg and sophomore forward Brandon Morris (6-7, 215) with 10.8 ppg.

Georgia's projected starters are forward Marcus Thorton, forward Donte Williams, forward Cameron Forte, guard Charles Mann and guard Kenny Gaines.

Another winnable game for the Cats, but which team shows up? The road team that loses or the team that plays and wins in Cullowhee?  If the same old road team shows up in Athens, the Cats don't have a prayer of a chance, however, if we didn't score our years' quota of three's on Wednesday night for 2013, the Cats just may pull off the up-set.
