As the SEC season enters its final week of the season, there is still much uncertainty for Mark Fox's Bulldogs. Georgia mathematically can still finish as high as second or as low as fifth in the Eastern Division standings. The Bulldogs will be seeking their 20th win of the season in what is Jeremy Price and Chris Barnes last game at Stegeman Coliseum. Both will be honored in a pre-game ceremony.
LSU has struggled this season at 11-18 overall and 3-11 in the SEC. Georgia is looking for its ninth conference win of the season which is significant in that it would guarantee the Bulldogs a winning conference record for the first time since 2003. Georgia can not afford any slip-ups at home against the Tigers as a loss would put them on rather shaky ground heading into the SEC conference tournament.
LSU leads the all-time series by a 60-40 count. The Bulldogs are 24-21 against the Tigers in Athens. Georgia has won 14 of the last 24 meetings.
LSU has just one win in its last 12 games. The Tigers broke a ten game losing streak with an 84-82 victory over Mississippi State on Feb 23. LSU lost to Vanderbilt by a score of 90-69 in its last outing this past weekend. Georgia comes in having most recently defeated South Carolina 64-48 this past Saturday.
Tipoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. and can be seen on the SEC Network. For more on the game be sure and check out And The Valley Shook and Dawg Sports.
