Peach State College Basketball Schedule: Kentucky Pays Visit To Athens On Tuesday

This week's Peach State hoops action is highlighted by Kentucky's trip to Athens on Tuesday to take on the Bulldogs and the Yellow Jackets hitting the road for a clash with North Carolina on Sunday.

Things aren't going to get any easier for the Georgia Bulldogs with the Kentucky Wildcats up next for a visit to Stegeman Coliseum on Tuesday. By the time the two teams meet, Kentucky will likely reclaim the No. 1 ranking after a loss by Syracuse on Saturday.

The Bulldogs made a big comeback in Saturday's game against Ole Miss but head coach Mark Fox was not happy with his team's effort following the game.

"We didn't deserve a chance to win it, in my opinion,"

Georgia Tech also saw a comeback effort fall just short on Saturday against Clemson falling 64-62. Brian Gregory wasn't pleased with the loss but he was much happier than he was following Tech's 70-38 loss to Virginia earlier in the week.

"I feel a lot better than I did the other night because at least we competed, at least we played hard and at least we showed some pride in what we're trying to get done,"

The Yellow Jackets will have their work cut out for them again this week as they host Miami on Tuesday before traveling to Chapel Hill on Sunday to take on the Tar Heels.
