The Lady Bulldogs had an interesting weekend after winning against Missouri, 55-41, on Friday, but falling to South Carolina, 71-49, on Saturday. However, they were able to pull a hosting seed, which they haven’t done since 2003.
At the end of the regular season, the team finished 25-6 overall, with a 12-4 record in the SEC. As a team overall, the Bulldogs averages 67.8 points and 39.8 rebounds per game.
The Bulldogs will face the Mercer Bears. They had an overall record of 30-2, and 14-0 in the Southern Conference. This season the Bears took home the 2018 SoCon Championship title. This will be Mercer’s first appearance in the NCAA women’s basketball tournament.
No. 4 Georgia will face No. 13 Mercer on Saturday, Mar. 17 at 1:30 p.m. at the Stegeman Coliseum in Athens.
Winner of Saturday’s game will play either No. 5 Duke or No. 12 Belmont on Monday, Mar. 19.
