ATHENS — Georgia basketball will be without guard Jordan Harris for at least one more game as he continues to recover from the concussion he suffered at LSU last Wednesday night.
Coach Tom Crean said guard Tye Fagan (Achilles) is questionable, and starting forward Rayshaun Hammonds is probable with the shoulder injury that briefly sidelined him during the Bulldogs’ 98-88 win over Texas last Saturday.
Georgia (10-9, 1-5 SEC) plays at Arkansas (11-8, 2-4) at 7 p.m. on Tuesday in Bud Walton Arena (TV: ESPNU).
Crean said his Bulldogs will be challenged by the Razorbacks’ relentless press in what figures to be a hostile environment.
“We’ve seen some presses obviously, but I don’t think we’ve seen anything like this,” said Crean, whose Georgia team committed a season-high 26 turnovers in the win over Texas.
“They just keep coming at you,” Crean said. “It’s not a press that takes a break. It’s not a press that stops once you get into the front court, and they keep bringing aggressive pressure.”
The Bulldogs rank last in the SEC and tied for 316th in the nation (out of 351 teams) in the turnover department.
Crean previewed the Arkansas game at length and reviewed the progress the Bulldogs have made in his first season during Monday’s press conference at Stegeman Coliseum:
