Outlook: This will be Georgia's sixth road trip in its last eight games, but the grind was made more bearable by a win at Kentucky on Sunday. Georgia is 3-2 on the road in SEC games and only 1-3 at home.

One of Georgia's home losses came on Jan. 10, when South Carolina took a 71-64 win. In that game, Lady Gamecocks forward Tatyana Troina scored 22 points off the bench, hitting six 3-pointers. Troina averages 7.8 points per game.

Georgia center Tawana McDonald enters tonight's game needing only two blocked shots to match Katrina McClain's school career record of 290. Georgia leads the series 19-3. Georgia plays host to No. 3 Tennessee on Sunday.
