Georgia and Savannah State have met just one previous time, in December of 2004, when the Bulldogs prevailed by a 100-69 score. Like the FAMU game last Tuesday, Georgia put the game away with a 55-point first half and reached the century mark for the first time in four years. The Dogs also sank 14 three-point shots against Savannah State, fourth-highest total in school history.
The current homestand continues next Wednesday night when the Bulldogs entertain Georgia Tech in the two schools' annual renewal of their rivalry.
Georgia-Savannah State Series
Today's game is the second all-time meeting between these two schools. Georgia won the first game last season in Athens by a 100-69 score. That win was Georgia's fifth straight, and they would end up winning just two more games all season. The Tigers, meanwhile, went winless throughout the 2005 season.
