The Bulldogs applied for a spot in the NIT tournament, but as a team with a sub-.500 record they are unlikely to receive a spot in the 32-team field when selections are announced Sunday at 9 p.m. on ESPNU.
If their season is indeed over, the Bulldogs will next wait to see whether sophomore guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope -- who earlier this week was named SEC Player of the Year and scored a career-high 32 points against LSU -- will return for his junior season. Some draft projections list Caldwell-Pope as a late-first-round pick and ESPN’s Chad Ford lists him as the No. 31 prospect in the 2013 NBA draft should he leave school early.
Georgia’s baseball team opened SEC play on Friday night with a 4-1 loss at Texas A&M. The Bulldogs and Aggies square off Saturday at 3 p.m. and again Sunday at 1 p.m.
The Bulldogs (8-10, 0-1 SEC) wrapped up a nine-game homestand by splitting two midweek games against Appalachian State. The Bulldogs were 6-3 on the homestand, including a sweep of UAB and two wins in three games against Liberty.
They return home to face Furman at 5 p.m. on Tuesday and will host Alabama for a three-game series that starts Friday at 7 p.m.
