Georgia Bulldogs Basketball Schedule
Every year when the college basketball season gets underway there is arguably
no better place in the country to be than inside of Stegeman Coliseum, the Athens, Georgia home of the Georgia Bulldogs basketball
team. Last season the Bulldogs finished third in the SEC and went 12-6 in the conference and 20-14 overall, and they are ready
to make a big move up the conference standings this year as they are poised for a huge season. Head coach Mark Fox is an excellent
motivator and he will have plenty of talent to work with during the 2014-2015 season including the returning high-scoring
duo of Kenny Gaines and Charles Mann along with senior big man Marcus Thornton. Navigating through the challenging SEC is
never an easy task but the Bulldogs appear to have the talent and experience to make some serious noise this season. Be sure
to get your tickets for all of the Georgia Bulldogs' biggest games from StubHub as soon as possible so you can get some of
the best seats in the house.
In hoping to accomplish their goal of making a return to the NCAA Tournament this season
the Bulldogs will have their work cut out for them as they take on many of the best teams in all of college hoops. The Georgia
Bulldogs have home games at Stegeman Coliseum against the Stony Brook Seawolves, the Troy Trojans, the Florida Atlantic Owls,
the Colorado Buffaloes, the Seton Hall Pirates, the Mercer Bears, and the Norfolk State Spartans before conference play even
begins. Once SEC play gets underway the Bulldogs will host the Arkansas Razorbacks, the Florida Gators, the Ole Miss Rebels,
the Vanderbilt Commodores, the Tennessee Volunteers, the Auburn Tigers, the South Carolina Gamecocks, the Missouri Tigers,
and the Kentucky Wildcats. During their mission to leapfrog teams like Florida and Kentucky the Georgia Bulldogs will need
every last bit of home court advantage they can get from all of their biggest fans at Stegeman Coliseum.
Bulldogs Basketball History
The history of Georgia Bulldogs basketball dates back well over a century to 1891 and has
been a member of the SEC since its founding in 1932. The Bulldogs have yet to win a National Championship and have missed
out on the last three NCAA Tournaments. However, the program has an incredible history of success that includes such notable
former players as Vern Fleming, Dominique Wilkins, Shandon Anderson, Jarvis Hayes, and more. The Bulldogs have won one regular
season conference title and two conference tournament championships while making 11 trips to the NCAA Tournament, most recently
in 2011. Georgia has been to the Sweet Sixteen twice, the Elite Eight twice, and the Final Four once. This season the Bulldogs
will have one of the best backcourts in the conference and should be able to not only find their way to the top of the SEC
standings, but make their way back to the NCAA Tournament where they could make some serious noise. It is an exciting time
to be a Georgia Bulldogs fan so be sure to head out to Stegeman Coliseum to show the team some support.
Bulldogs Basketball Conference
While the SEC has long been known for its college football, basketball has always been
a big deal in the conference as well and in recent years several schools have stepped up their game making it extremely difficult
for a team to navigate the tough conference schedule. Perennial powerhouses Kentucky, Florida, and Tennessee always are staunch
competition and with the recent development of programs like Ole Miss, Auburn, Georgia, and Alabama, the conference is only
getting tougher. Altogether the SEC has won eleven National Championships with Kentucky leading the way with eight. Florida
has won two national titles, back to back championships in 2006 and 2007, and Arkansas won one in 1994 Playing such a tough
regular season schedule annually leaves the teams from the SEC who are selected for the Tournament ready to take on any college
in the country and allows for even some of the lower seeds to pull off big time upsets. When it comes to college sports there
is arguably no conference that is historically better or more dominant than the SEC. The Georgia Bulldogs hit the hardwood
at the Stegeman Coliseum all season long, and their home venue is no stranger to selling out during the most anticipated match
ups of the year. The Bulldogs are coached by Mark Fox who has spent the past few seasons bringing excitement back to Athens
as the Bulldogs have been trying to re-establish themselves as one of the top teams in the SEC.
nothing like being in the stands when the game is on the line, so ditch the couch, brush off the potato chips and get ready
to see a game you won't soon forget. College basketball has plenty of great games on the schedule each and every season, from
plenty of top-tier regular season battles to Tournament clashes that you'll have to see first-hand to believe. These are some
of the best amateur athletes in the entire world, though that's something that you need to see for yourself to truly appreciate.
Will you be there when your favorite player pulls up for a game-winning three that will have everyone jumping out of their
seat in unison? There is nothing quite like being there with thousands of your fellow fans as the Bulldogs look to pile up
the wins and give their fans another memorable season, though that's not something that you're going to figure out sitting
at home wondering what the atmosphere of the big game is like.
So far one former Georgia Bulldog
has gone on to be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame, Dominique Wilkins who went on to an incredible NBA career playing
for the nearby Atlanta Hawks. Georgia is a charter member of the SEC which originally formed prior to the 1933 season. Before
the formation of the SEC, Georgia played in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association and the Southern Conference.
