Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Lady Dogs will open the season against Rutgers

Friday August 4, 2006

Last year, Andy Landers took his undermanned team up against defending champion Baylor in the season opener at the State Farm Tip-Off Classic. The Lady Dogs played well until the final minutes when their lack of post depth was painfully exposed.

This year, Georgia will once again participate in the State Farm Tip-Off Classic, hosted by Oklahoma, and will face Rutgers on November 12. Rutgers isn’t the defending champ, but they always have a good team and are coached by C. Vivian Stringer, one of the best there is. Rutgers lost superstar guard Cappie Pondexter to the WNBA, but they bring in a top-rated recruiting class headlined by high-scoring Epiphanny Prince.

This opener is just part of a typically-challenging Lady Dogs non-conference schedule which will also feature Stanford, Georgia Tech, and FSU.
