"Personally, I'm really excited about the chance to coach and compete in my first SEC Tournament," said Georgia head coach Dennis Felton.
"They're dangerous in this tournament," said Auburn Coach Cliff Ellis of Georgia. "They beat Kentucky twice, and that kind of catches your eye."
The winner of the game will play the Wildcats in the quarterfinals.
"We're excited to play against Auburn. They're a challenging team because they have two qualities that make it tough for us - the have terrific size and they have a lot of athleticism," said Felton.
The Tigers won the only game between the two 57-54 on February 7th in Auburn.
"They will be a really good challenge for us to have to find a way to win in our first game in the tournament," said Felton.
