The Georgia basketball team will be playing host to the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Tuesday. Mississippi State stumbles in losing 4 of their last 5 games. Georgia comes in after a huge road win at Tennessee.
By The Numbers
The Georgia Bulldogs average 72 points per game on 45 % shooting and they grab 38 rebounds a game. So far this season has been solid on defense, only giving up 69 points per game.
MSU is averaging a slightly better scoring record at 75 points per game on 45% shooting. However, defensively, they don’t seem quite a strong as UGA, averaging only 35 rebounds a game and allowing 72 points per game on their defense.
Players to Watch
Sophomore guard Quinndary Weatherspoon is the player to watch for Mississippi State. The 6’4 guard is one of the best scorers in the SEC. He averages 16.8 points per game. He also rebounds well at 5 rebounds per game.

Tyree Crump is the player to watch for the Georgia Bulldogs. The freshman guard is coming off of his best game in a Georgia uniform. Crump showed flashes of his offensive abilities and played well defensively. He got his first career start against Tennessee. He scored 13.
Up and Comers
Mississippi State has a huge freshman weapon at guard. It is Mario Keglar. Keglar is 6’7 and weighs 220 pounds and he is scoring 10.3 points per game. He adds to the rebound total, grabbing 5.6 rebounds per game. It seems to me that the MSU guards rebound well.
Freshman guard Jordan Harris for UGA continues to have strong outings each game. He averages just over 5 points per game but has shown he can be clutch. Look out for this freshman to have a big game against Mississippi State.
