Georgia Bulldogs Basketball Tickets
The Georgia Bulldogs basketball team was established in 1891. The team became an official member of the Southeastern Conference in 1932 when the conference was instituted. As of 2019, the team boasted an overall winning record, with over 1,420 games won in 114 seasons. Even though the squad has not accomplished the ultimate goal of earning a national championship, it has made the NCAA Tournament 10 times since 1983. The Bulldogs do possess four conference tournament championships in the team's history. Stegeman Coliseum in Athens is the team's home. The Bulldogs represent the University of Georgia, and because the school's football team receives so much attention, the basketball team works hard to earn equal acclaim. The basketball team's biggest rivals are similar to those of the school's football program, including Auburn, Georgia Tech and Florida. Basketball Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins is one of the school's most notable players. The "Human Highlight Film" was awarded the conference's Player of the Year in 1981, and Wilkins averaged nearly 22 points per game during his time at Georgia. Twelve players in school history have been named NCAA All-Americans, with Wilkins achieving that designation twice. StubHub is your source for Georgia Bulldogs basketball tickets.
