COLUMBUS, Ga. – A huge three late and some strong defense when they needed it most helped the Georgia College Men’s Basketball team (7-1) even out its lone loss of the season, this time beating Tuskegee University (3-6) 74-67 Saturday. The Bobcats closed the Columbus Classic tournament with a 2-0 mark and have now won five straight. Georgia began the season with a closer-than-it-should-have-been 58-51 win over Florida International. The Bulldogs then came up just short of knocking off a good Cincinnati team on the road, losing to the Bearcats 73-68. Georgia beat South Carolina State 76-60 before losing to Georgia Tech 88-78, snapping a five-game winning streak over the in-state rival Yellow JackeVirginia has had an up-and-down start to the season, as the Cavaliers come into this game with a 2-2 record, including two performances in losses to Navy and Houston that left much to be desired.

We will learn a lot about the Hoos this week as they face major conference competition in back-to-back games on Monday and Tuesday at the Roman Legends Classic at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. On Monday night, Virginia plays Georgia for the first time since Christmas Eve in 1987. Then, UVA will play either Northwestern or Providence on Tuesday.Virginia did not perform so well in the one game the Cavaliers have played away from the friendly confines of John Paul Jones Arena this season, losing at Houston 67-47. The Cougars are a very good basketball team and it was UVA’s first time playing in a true road game with a packed hostile crowd in attendance in over a year and a half. It will be interesting to see how this Virginia roster, with its many new faces, performs on a neutral court at the Prudential Center. Additionally, will Tony Bennett continue to give playing time to more players on the bench against Georgia knowing that the Hoos have to turn around and play another game less than 24 hours later?
