Sicemdawgs.com has reported the tentative Georgia Men’s Basketball schedule. The schedule was obtained through an open records request and should to be finalized next week.
Non-conference home games include Seton Hall and Colorado as well as early rounds games of the 2014 NIT Season Tip-Off. With a winning effort in the NIT Season Tip-Off games, the team will play twice in New York’s Madison Square Garden. The Bulldogs will also go on the road to UT-Chattanooga, Kansas State and arch rival Georgia Tech.
The SEC home slate for the Bulldogs will be fan friendly with Kentucky, Florida, and Tennessee all returning to the Stegeman Coliseum after a one year absence from the home schedule.
Arkansas, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, Missouri, Ole Miss and Auburn will also come to Athens. Although Georgia does play Kentucky twice this year, the Bulldogs will not travel to Gainesville and the Conference schedule provides an opportunity to improve on last years Conference record.
Georgia returns all but one significant contributor from last years team and with Florida and Tennessee rolling off the road schedule and onto the home slate, the Dawgs will have an excellent chance to improve on last years very good 4 – 5 SEC road record. If Georgia plays as expected at home they should earn an NCAA bid, but the team must play well and win in November and December. And priority one is handling the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets – winners of an embarrassing three straight over the Dawg Cagers – on the road in Alexander Memorial Coliseum.
