The Tennessee Volunteers have made the trip south to Athens tonight to take on the Georgia Bulldogs. With each team sitting squarely on the NCAA Tournament bubble, we may look back as this one as a key game come March.
Georgia’s new look team features former No. 2 overall recruit Anthony Edwards, who is pacing the Bulldogs so far this season. Edwards is averaging nearly 19 points per game so far and will easily be the most talented play that Tennessee has faced all season long. Jordan Bowden, Santiago Vescovi and Josiah James will have their work cut out for them defensively.
Tennessee will get a boost tonight in the form of 7-1 center Uros Plavsic, who was cleared by the NCAA on Tuesday. Plavsic will provide immediate depth and some much needed size for Rick Barnes.
