Snowy conditions around the southeast forced Georgia's basketball team to travel by bus to Nashville for tonight's game against Vanderbilt. Georgia had originally planned to fly from Athens to Nashville on Tuesday but had to scrap those plans. Mark Fox tweeted that team arrived safely sometime in Nashville last night.
Game Day in Nashville - and yeah we finally made it here last night. We need it to warm up in Athens so we can get home. Go Dawgs!
The Bulldogs go into tonight's game riding a nine game winning streak and fresh off a sterling upset of Kentucky this past Saturday in Athens in their SEC opener. Georgia has lost its last eight road SEC contests. Vanderbilt lost its SEC opener, an 83-75 loss at South Carolina. The Commodores are 11-3 on the season.
Georgia enters this game ranked No. 24 in this week's AP Top 25 poll. Ranked Georgia teams haven't faired well in Nashville. Before tonight, Georgia has visited Vanderbilt while being ranked in the AP Top 25 six times and have only emerged victorious once.
Following this game, Georgia will be back on the road this Saturday when they travel to Mississippi to take on the Rebels.
