Time for a rebound to the Tennessee curse. Since beating the Vols at home the Dawgs have failed to secure a victory at home or on the road. Tonight they take on #18 Vandy. So get out of the cold and watch the dawgs take to the court. If you can't make it, just open a cold one.
Some notes from georgiadogs.com
A geographical breakdown of the series follows:
Games in Athens: UGA leads 32-26
Games in Nashville: VU leads 49-13
Neutral-Court Games: VU leads 5-3
A couple other notes about Leslie: of the top 20 rebounders in the SEC, he is the shortest at 6’4” and the only one listed as a guard. Leslie has attempted just nine 3-point shots in 46 collegiate games and has made four. Two of his makes came Wednesday night in the Arkansas game.
The Bulldogs’ per-game scoring average through six SEC games (72.4 ppg) is actually 4.4 points higher than their overall average. That’s a rarity indeed; not since 2001 has a Georgia team’s final SEC-games average been higher than its final overall scoring average.

The Commodores, who are 3-1 on the road in SEC play this year, are looking to match a Stallings-era best (since 1999-00) for most road wins in a season at Georgia on Saturday. Vanderbilt won four road games in the 2005-06 campaign, and last started 4-1 on the road in league play in 1966-67.
In Vanderbilt's last 12 games, the Commodores are 11-1 in those games and are averaging 82.2 points per game is shooting 52.0% in that span. A.J. Ogilvy and Jermaine Beal have led the team in scoring in those games with 14.8 points per contest apiece. The team also has 190 assists against only 165 turnovers, and is knocking down 42.6% of its shots from beyond-the-arc in their last 12 games. FreshmanJohn Jenkins has led the way from three, converting on 57.9% of his three-point attempts (33-for-57).
