The Bulldogs topped the Niners 77-69 on Oct. 25, 2019. Tyree Crump scored a game-high 19 points, and Edwards added 15 points, five rebounds and three assists to lead Georgia in that game.
This is the third time in Crean’s four seasons in Athens that the Bulldogs have played a road exhibition. Georgia defeated UAB 56-54 before the 2018 season got started.
The Bulldogs already had another exhibition game scheduled. They’ll play host to Morehouse on Nov. 5 at Stegeman Coliseum.
The 2021-22 Bulldogs need all the experience they can possibly get this season. Senior P.J. Horne is the only returning starter from a team that had nine players exit via the NCAA transfer portal. Georgia was 14-12 last season and 7-11 in SEC play.
Georgia added seven transfers and three freshman signees for a total of 10 newcomers on this season’s squad. But the Bulldogs point out that their seven transfers have combined to score 4,782 points at their previous schools, the largest addition of career scoring for any Division I team.
The Bulldogs officially will begin their fourth season under Crean against Florida International on Nov. 9, at Stegeman Coliseum. That contest is the first of 19 home games for Georgia during the 2021-22 season.
