Whatever Mark Fox’s first UGA team ends up looking like, they’ll get a fairly early high-profile outing thanks to the third annual SEC/Big East Challenge, which will match the Dogs with St. John’s at the Big Apple’s Madison Square Garden on Dec. 9 as the prelim (carried on ESPN2) to the Kentucky-UConn matchup on ESPN. The two programs have played only a couple of times before, most memorably when the Dogs eliminated St. John’s in the second round of the NCAA Tournament in 1983. … Teresa Edwards, two-time All-American for Andy Landers’ Lady Dogs and the only basketball player, male or female, to represent the United States in five Olympics, has been nominated for the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame. Voting is open online through June 16 here. The inductees will be announced in July. If ever there was an Olympian worthy of the Hall of Fame, it’s Edwards. So go vote!
