Andy Landers seeks win No. 800 Tuesday against Savannah State

Don McPeak-US PRESSWIRE

Georgia women's basketball coach Andy Landers is one win away from No. 800 of his career. The Bulldogs play the Savannah State Tigers on Tuesday.

Georgia Bulldogs women's basketball head coach Andy Landers has a chance to record win No. 800 in Tuesday's game against the Savannah St. Tigers. Landers, who recorded his first win as head coach in 1979 against Piedmont, would become only the eighth major college basketball coach to win 800 games.

Other accomplishments for Landers include 29 NCAA Tournament appearances, 19 trips to the Sweet 16 and five Final Four appearances, reaching the national championship game twice. This game is the fourth in eight days for the Bulldogs, A win in Tuesday's game will clear things ahead of the pursuit of an SEC and NCAA championship. According to guard Jasmine Jones, while the win would be good, it's just another day for their team:

But we're going to practice and prepare for Savannah State just like we would anyone else so we can try as hard as we can to get that win for Coach. It's kind of fun to do stuff like that. I wouldn't say it's one of our main focuses because it's not something that Coach talks about.

The Bulldogs play the Tigers on Tuesday night with tipoff scheduled for 7 p.m. at Stegeman Coliseum and will be broadcast on WRFC 960 AM. The last time these two teams played was in 2009 and the Bulldogs won, 85-45.
