Georgia @ Vanderbilt

Current Records: Georgia 6-14; Vanderbilt 10-9

What to Know

The Vanderbilt Commodores will be returning home after a two-game road trip. The Commodores and the Georgia Bulldogs will face off in an SEC battle at 6 p.m. ET Saturday at Memorial Gym. UGA will be strutting in after a win while Vanderbilt will be stumbling in from a loss.

Vanderbilt came up short against the South Carolina Gamecocks on Wednesday, falling 70-61. A silver lining for Vanderbilt was the play of guard Scotty Pippen Jr., who had 24 points and five assists along with eight rebounds.

Meanwhile, the Alabama Crimson Tide typically have all the answers at home, but on Tuesday UGA proved too difficult a challenge. The Bulldogs managed an 82-76 victory over the Crimson Tide. Four players on UGA scored in the double digits: guard Aaron Cook (15), forward Braelen Bridges (13), forward Jabri Abdur-Rahim (13), and guard Kario Oquendo (11).

The Commodores are the favorite in this one, with an expected 9-point margin of victory. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past three games, so buyers beware.

Vanderbilt is now 10-9 while UGA sits at 6-14. Two numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Vanderbilt has only been able to knock down 40.70% percent of their shots, which is the 28th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. UGA has experienced some struggles of their own as they have allowed their opponents to shoot 46% from the floor on average, which is the 21st highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
