Georgia adds Appalachian State and Wofford to 2013-14 Basketball Schedule
The Georgia Bulldogs have added games against Appalachian State and Wofford to their 2013-14 basketball schedule, Sicemdawgs.com has learned through an open records request.
Georgia will host Wofford at Stegeman Coliseum on Friday, Nov. 8, 2013. That will likely be the season-opener for the Bulldogs.
In nine meetings against the Wofford Terriers, Georgia is 8-1. The Bulldogs beat the Terriers 62-49 in their last meeting in Athens in 2011.
Georgia is also set to host the Appalachian State Mountaineers on Friday, Nov. 29, 2013. The Bulldogs are 3-0 overall against ASU after forfeiting their 2002 victory.
The Hoop Dawgs now have seven contracted non-conference games for the 2013-14 season – Wofford, Georgia Tech, Appalachian State, Lipscomb, Gardner-Webb, Western Carolina, and at George Washington.
Georgia will also play three games in the 2013 Charleston Classic. The complete field includes Georgia, Clemson, Davidson, Nebraska, New Mexico, Temple, UAB, and UMass.

Fox also told The Telegraph that he is trying to get a “high major” non-conference team to come to Athens. “Trying really hard to do that. It’s been a bit of a challenge. So few teams are playing home-and-homes,” Fox said.
