Georgia's basketball team will play two of the SEC's toughest teams just once each this year.
On Wednesday, the conference unveiled its 2016 schedule, with the Bulldogs' 18-game slate announced. The Bulldogs will open conference play on the road at Florida on Jan. 2 before coming back home to play Missouri at home on Jan. 6.
Georgia plays Kentucky and LSU just once each, though both games are on the road. Georgia travels to Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Jan. 26 and to Lexington, Kentucky on Feb. 9. The lone two-game road stretch of the season occurs after the Kentucky game, with the Bulldogs visiting Mississippi State on Feb. 13.
"This is a brand new team," Georgia head coach Mark Fox said. "Every year we start anew, and this group has to pay the price. We’ve got a lot of work in front of us. If we can just focus on getting a little bit better every day, doing things the right way, learning how to play the right way, then hopefully when SEC play comes in January, we’ll be ready."
