Lady Dawgs Preview: Georgia vs. LSU

BATON ROUGE - Josh Kendall takes a look at the Lady Dawgs' game with LSU.

No. 15 Georgia (13-2, 1-0 SEC) vs. No. 6 LSU (14-1, 0-0 SEC)

Time/place: 3 p.m./Baton Rouge, La.

About LSU: There's no question who will get the bulk of Georgia's defensive attention. Six-foot-six Tiger center Sylvia Fowles averages 17.1 points and 10.4 rebounds per game and hits 65 percent of her shots from the floor.

About Georgia: Guard Cori Chambers is just two 3-pointers shy of Kedra Holland-Corn's school record of 253. She has 54 3-pointers this year, which leads the SEC and is second in the nation, and leads the Lady Bulldogs with 16.2 points per game. … After starting the same lineup in the first eight games, Coach Andy Landers has gone with seven different groupings in the seven of the last eight. Chambers is the only player to have started every game.

Scouting report: This is the Georgia's first real chance to being proving itself. Post players Tasha Humphrey and Angel Robinson are at or nearing 100 percent health after knee injuries and freshmen point guard Ashley Houts has 15 games under her belt. "We're still a basketball team that is developing its identity," Coach Andy Landers said. "I know that it's late in the year to be saying that, but we didn't get all of the parts together until late. So, we're still in the developmental state. We've got to get better defensively. We need to rebound the ball better. There's just so many things that this basketball team needs to do that's unusual at this time of year." Georgia leads the all-time series between these teams 18-13.

Up next: Georgia vs. Mississippi State (7 p.m., Thursday, Starkville, Miss.); LSU vs. Ole Miss (7 p.m., Thursday, Oxford, Miss.)
