Kendall's Take: Lady Daws close out season

ATHENS - Josh Kendall breaks down Georgia's game with Auburn.

Time/place: Today, 2:30 p.m., Stegeman Coliseum, Athens, Ga.

Broadcast: No television

Records: No. 13 Georgia is 19-7, 9-4 SEC; Auburn is 13-13, 4-9 SEC

About Georgia: With a victory today, Georgia will guarantee Andy Landers his 22nd season with at least 20 victories. In just four of Landers first 26 years have the Lady Bulldogs failed to win at least 20. "I think I'm proudest of the consistency," Landers said, "the fact that we've been a team that other teams across the country would agree that year in and year out, we've been on the leaderboard." …Georgia will honor five seniors today in their last home game of the season. Players Sherrill Baker, Alexis Kendrick and Desire Bostice, manager Nicki Williams and athletic trainer Tia Foster-Herbin will be recognized before the game.

About Auburn: The Tigers are led by freshman swing player Dewanna Bonner, who is averaging 13.3 points per game. … Auburn's starting post players are 6-foot-4, 6-5 and 6-7. "They're giants," Landers said. "We thought South Carolina was big, and they are. We thought Tennessee was big, and they are. But Auburn takes that to another level literally." … Georgia assistant Brenda Hill scored 1,222 points as an Auburn player, which ranks 15th on the school's all-time scoring list.

Scouting report: The Tigers have the height advantage, but that's about it. Auburn has just one win this month and has lost 11 of its last 13 games against Georgia. The Lady Bulldogs need to win this game to preserve their perfect record against "the rest of the league." Georgia's only four conferences losses have come to LSU and Tennessee. Otherwise, this game doesn't have a whole lot of meaning. Georgia already is slotted as the No. 3 seed in next week's SEC Tournament. It will play the winner of Thursday's game between the Nos. 6 and 11 seeds.
