“Redesigned” Dogs Head To Bama

The Georgia Bulldogs travel to Tuscaloosa on Thursday night for the second half of a home-and-home series with Alabama’s Crimson Tide. The game will tip at 7:00 p.m. ET and will be televised on ESPN2.

Georgia is currently 15-12 overall and 6-8 in the SEC. That league mark is somewhat deceiving considering the Bulldogs are the only team to play Kentucky, Florida and South Carolina – the trio atop the league standings for most of January and February – twice. Georgia is 6-2 in games against the rest of the SEC.

The Bulldogs will be without Yante MatenClick here to hear it, who has been the SEC’s second-leading scorer for much of the 2016-17 campaign. Maten, one of 10 players on the final watch list for the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award as the nation’s premier center, suffered a sprained right knee 95 seconds in to last Saturday’s game against No. 13 Kentucky.

“Obviously, our team was mostly built around Yante so we will have to redesign some things, but we aren’t going to be able to reinvent ourselves completely this late in the year,” Mark Fox said on Tuesday. “Our other guys are going to have to step up and play a little bit bigger role, and we will have to be a little smarter and stay out of foul trouble and be very efficient with how we play.”

Before and after Maten’s injury there were signs certain Bulldogs were ready to increase their contributions down the regular-season’s home stretch.

In his first career start two Saturdays ago in Knoxville, freshman Tyree CrumpClick here to hear it scored 13 points – including five in stretch of 17 seconds that pushed a one-point lead to 70-64 – in a 76-75 victory over Tennessee.
