Current Records: Bucknell 2-1; Georgia 2-1
What to Know
The Georgia Bulldogs' homestand continues as they prepare to take on the Bucknell Bison at 7 p.m. ET Nov. 18 at Stegeman Coliseum. The Bulldogs should still be feeling good after a victory, while Bucknell will be looking to regain their footing.
UGA was able to grind out a solid win over the Miami (Ohio) RedHawks on Monday, winning 77-70. UGA relied on the efforts of guard Terry Roberts, who had 22 points, and forward KyeRon Lindsay, who dropped a double-double on 14 points and ten rebounds.
Meanwhile, Bucknell received a tough blow on Tuesday as they fell 82-71 to the St. Peter's Peacocks.
UGA is the favorite in this one, with an expected 13-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are 0-2 against the spread when favored.
The Bulldogs' win brought them up to 2-1 while the Bison's defeat pulled them down to an identical 2-1. A couple stats to keep an eye on: UGA is eighth worst in college basketball in turnovers per game, with 18 on average. Bucknell has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the contest with the 44th fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 11.3 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
