For the first time in almost eight years, Georgia’s men’s basketball team is nationally ranked.
The Bulldogs are No. 24 in this week’s Associated Press poll -– the first time they have been in the Top 25 since the final poll of the 2002-03 season.
Saturday’s 77-70 victory over No. 10 Kentucky vaulted the Dogs (12-2, 1-0 SEC) into the poll. The win was Georgia’s ninth in a row, the program’s longest winning streak since the 1982-83 season.
Georgia, however, did not crack this week’s ESPN/USA Today coaches’ poll. The Bulldogs are fourth among teams “also receiving votes” there.
