Coming off of their most lopsided defeat of the season, Mark Fox and the Georgia Bulldogs have a bit of a reprieve on Wednesday night, as they return to Athens to take on the Vanderbilt Commodores. Prior to the Kentucky debacle, the Dawgs did grab back-to-back home wins over Arkansas and South Carolina, and they’ll be looking to redevelop that magic.

The ‘Dores enter with a 10-8 record overall and a 2-4 mark in SEC play, taking a fairly severe step back from their previous benchmarks under Kevin Stallings. Offense has been the main issue for Vandy this season, as they currently sit outside the top-150 in the country in offensive efficiency at 104.6 points per 100 (yikes). They’ve also been devastated by in-season defections, and this is a significantly reduced squad in terms of talent.

For Mark Fox, the challenge will be scoring enough points against what has been a solid defense for the Commodores. UGA is still ranked outside the top-100 in offense, and it has been a hit-or-miss proposition (especially in the backcourt) in recent days.

For a bit of perspective, our pals in Las Vegas have installed the Dawgs as a 6-point favorite in the game (and KenPom projects a 3-point win), giving a little bit of home to local fans with regard to grabbing another conference win. At 4-2 in the SEC, this is a pivotal time for Georgia, and this is a home game that they can little afford to lose.

Stay tuned for updates as they arise.
