Georgia coach Mark Fox can’t be counted among those in college basketball who walk the fine line between too much risk and preparing his team for the challenge of the league when it comes to scheduling.
Fox and the Bulldogs are all in on a difficult non-conference slate for the second consecutive year. Last year, the Georgia schedule ranked No. 3 nationally in terms of strength of schedule in the NCAA RPI rankings.
The Bulldogs will tip off the season Friday, Nov. 11, at Clemson. Fox will also take his team on the road to face Georgia Tech and Oakland in December non-conference action.
The marquee games at Stegeman Coliseum feature the Bulldogs hosting Marquette on Dec. 4 and Texas on Jan. 28. They will also host Charleston Southern, Furman, Gardner-Webb, Louisiana-Lafayette, Morehouse and UNC Asheville.
Georgia will play in the CBE Hall of Fame Classic which begins at campus sites and wraps up in Kansas City, Mo. The Bulldogs know they will play George Washington in Kansas City and they will also face either Kansas or UAB in a second game there.
