The UGA basketball team will be featured in two ESPN “Super Tuesday” basketball games this upcoming season, the SEC announced today.
Georgia’s 2014-15 SEC opener, scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 6 in Athens, will be televised by ESPN at 7pm ET. The Bulldogs will then host the final “Super Tuesday” game of the season against Kentucky on March 3.
UGA is slated to begin the 2014-15 season with an exhibition game against Georgia Southwestern on Friday, Nov. 7, 2014. One week later, the Hoop Dawgs open the regular-season at in-state rival Georgia Tech on Friday, Nov. 14.
The remainder of Georgia’s non-conference schedule appears set. The Dawgs host Troy, Florida Atlantic, Colorado, Seton Hall, Mercer, and Norfolk State and travel to UT Chattanooga and Kansas State.
Georgia will also host one game of the NIT Season Tip-Off, tentatively set for Nov. 18, and then play three games at Madison Square Garden in New York between Nov. 26 and Nov. 28. The bracket for the tournament remains to be announced.
