Opening Tip

 
Georgia is back at home for the first time since New Year’s Eve as the Lady Bulldogs host the Arkansas Razorbacks at 7 p.m. ET Thursday on SEC Network +.

 

The Lady Bulldogs come home to Athens after winning back-to-back games on the road last week. Georgia held both Vanderbilt (52 points) and Kentucky (42 points) to season-low point totals to improve to 6-0 on the road for the first time since 1999.

 

Georgia has won nine of the last 10 meetings against Arkansas and has only lost to the Razorbacks twice — in 1990 and 2009 — at home in school history. The Lady Bulldogs own a 31-5 lead in the all-time series.

 

Que Morrison was named the SEC Freshman of the Week on Monday after sealing Georgia’s win at Kentucky. The Lady Bulldog rookie from Riverdale, Ga., led all scorers with 14 points for the game, including seven made free-throws in the fourth quarter. The win was Georgia’s first at Kentucky since 2013.

 

Caliya Robinson is Georgia’s leading scorer (12.3 ppg) and rebounder (6.9 rpg) this season. Robinson has scored in double figures in five-straight games and currently leads the SEC in blocked shots with 51 total (3.2 per game) this season.

 

Head coach Joni Taylor picked up the 50th win of her career last Thursday against Vanderbilt. Taylor owns a 51-27 record (.654) since being named head coach in 2015.

 

Georgia is one of the most unselfish teams in the SEC. The Lady Bulldogs ranks fourth in both assists per game (17.3) and assist-to-turnover ratio (1.1). Taja Cole is fourth in the league with 76 dimes and has recorded three or more assists in 14 of 16 contests this season.
