University of Georgia men's basketball play the number four team in the nation.

Westgate Events

University of Georgia men’s basketball is headed to play the Tennessee Volunteers, number four in the nation, after two lackluster losses against Kentucky and Vanderblit.

Tennessee is 16-3 for the season and coming into the game with only one conference loss.

UGA head coach, Mike White, understands the weight of Tennessee and says they are”one of the best defenses he’s scouted”.

UGA center, Braelen Bridges is confident that if they “stay locked in” they can succeed.

Bridges is likely to be the biggest starter on the court for either team, staggering at a height of 6 '11 and averaging just under 8 points, 5 rebounds per game.

For high scouring, keep an eye on guard Terry Roberts averaging nearly 16 points a game. Georgia has also outscored their opponents reserves by 168 points this season. Catch tonight's game at 7 p.m. against the Volunteers.
