Georgia Bulldogs

The Bulldogs started out the year on a pretty solid 14-5 run with losses to only Oregon, Miami, Providence, Tennessee and Kentucky. Georgia would lose to Florida, Alabama, South Carolina, Mississippi State, Arkansas, Florida and Auburn during a 1-7 run in the next eight outings.

In their latest loss to Auburn on Saturday, the Bulldogs faced a 45-34 deficit going into the second half. Georgia didn’t get any closer on a 52-42 run the rest of the way and lost 97-76. Noah Thomasson led the team with his 18 points, two rebounds and one steal in 30 minutes of work.

LSU Tigers

Over on the LSU side, they had a reasonable run through their first 17 games at 11-6 overall. The Tigers have struggled on a 3-7 stretch since then, falling to Texas A&M, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Alabama again, Florida and Mississippi State with wins over Arkansas, South Carolina and Kentucky otherwise.

Matched up against Mississippi State on Saturday, the Tigers were facing a 40-33 hole by the break. LSU put up a 47-34 deficit the rest of the way in an eventual loss 87-67. Trae Hannibal was the team’s top scorer in the losing effort with 22 points, six rebounds and two assists.


I’ll stick with LSU. This one’s a little tricky with both teams struggling right now, though. The Tigers didn’t play all that well against a pretty good Mississippi State team in their last outing, shooting just 41.4 percent from the field and 17.6 percent (3-of-17) from outside with 15 turnovers. LSU has been below 68 points in two of the last three games and could really use a shot in the arm on the scoreboard.

As for Georgia, they were able to power out a 68-66 home win the last time these teams met up back on January 24. The Bulldogs held the Tigers to just 38.6 percent shooting during a sloppy game (34 combined turnovers), so this rematch could get messy as well. I like LSU to get a little revenge at home, though.
