Lady Dawgs take on Tenneessee tonight in Athens

#3 vs. #8.  Get it on ladies.  Tipoff is 7pm.  Tennessee leads the series 39-14, including a 11-7 mark at Stegeman.  Tonight is the 18th time the Lady Dawgs and Lady Vols meet with both teams ranked in the top 10. This game is likely for the right to not be in the UConn side of the NCAA bracket.  I realize there is plenty of basketball to be played, but Georgia and UT are 1-2 in the East.  Winner of this game figures to only have 2-4 losses max on their resume.  Loser might end up there, but when they start seeding, a head to head deal will be difficult to overlook.

Also, the AJC has a good story on the Andy Landers-Pat Summitt rivalry.  It has been said by others, but I agree:  If Pat Summitt isn't at Tennessee, Andy Landers would be considered the greatest women's basketball coach ever. They split the first 14 matuchups.  Since then, it has been all Tennessee, including the 1996 National Championship game, where UT beat Georgia by 18.
