Howard game scheduled for 2 PM tipoff

ATHENS - Georgia's basketball contest against Howard University on January 2 – a game without a start time when the schedule was announced in September - has now been set for a 2:00 p.m. tipoff.

The intent of the 2 o'clock start is to avoid conflict with the Bulldogs' appearance in the Sugar Bowl football game, which kicks off at 8:30 p.m. in Atlanta on the same day.

The Jan. 2 game will be the first-ever meeting between Georgia and Howard, the alma mater of the Bulldogs' head coach Dennis Felton, in addition to assistant coach Mike Jones.
