As Georgia finished their overseas trip to Spain on Monday with three victories, the program has finalized its non-conference schedule for the upcoming season.

Georgia announced that they have added Morehouse College as the opponent for the final non-conference vacancy. That game will take place on November 30.

In addition, Georgia has slated their exhibition game against Fort Valley State University, and that is to take place on November 3. Eight days later, the Bulldogs will kick-off the regular season on November 11 against Clemson at Littlejohn Coliseum.

“Again we have put together a schedule that should prepare us for SEC play and provide the strength of schedule needed for our postseason résumé,” head coach Mark Fox said in a statement.

“With the road and neutral contests, it will be important for us to play well away from Stegeman Coliseum,” Fox said. “And hopefully the great crowds will continue to give us an advantage at home.”

Georgia heads back to Athens to prepare for the regular season after a week in Spain. On the trip, the Bulldogs finished 3-0, beating the Madrid all-stars 65-48, the Valencia all-stars 118-70, and closing it out with a victory against the Barcelona all-stars, 96-72.
