Georgia Men’s Hoops Travel to Arkansas

The Georgia Bulldogs hit the road Tuesday to face off against the Arkansas Razorbacks. The Bulldogs are 16-11 overall while the Razorbacks are 18-9. Both teams are searching for a much-needed conference win as Georgia sits at 6-8 and Arkansas sits at 7-7 in SEC play.

Bulldogs Hope to Get Back on Track

It was over almost as quickly as it began. The Bulldogs were dominated by the Alabama Crimson Tide Saturday 108-59.

Tuesday, Georgia looks to turn things around and finish its final four regular season games on a high note. However, this will be a tall task as the Bulldogs have struggled offensively.

Coming into the game tonight, Georgia has only been able to shoot 41.7% from the floor. If this trend continues, it will be difficult to keep up with the Razorbacks as they come in shooting 48.1% from the field.

The offensive woes could be improved if guard Justin Hill performs as he did against Alabama. He led the team with 17 points and shot 50% from the 3-point line.

Arkansas Begins Building Confidence Again

The Razorbacks are coming off of a dominating performance against the Florida Gators on Saturday.

Out of the Razorbacks’ final four regular games, they face two top-15 teams. They’ll look to enter the SEC tournament on a high note and two wins against ranked opponents will help build the momentum.

Jalen Green will look to continue his streak of impressive performances. Saturday, Green scored a career-high 26 points against the Gators, adding seven rebounds.

Additionally, guard Ricky Council IV hopes to serve as a consistent compliment. Council IV is averaging 16.4 pointer per game, leading the team.

Arkansas Tournament Hopes

According to CBS Sports, the team sits as a No. 10 seed in the NCAA Tournament, so they must continue to win to remain in the March Madness bracket conversation.

Start Time

Tipoff is at 9 p.m. in Fayetteville.
