Basketball Gets Going at Georgia

ATHENS - The Georgia Men's and Women's Basketball Team will begin practice on Friday, the first day allowable under NCAA regulations. Both teams will work out beginning at 5:00 p.m. in their respective gyms in the Georgia practice facility.

Mark Fox is entering his first season as head coach at Georgia after compiling a 123-43 record in five seasons at Nevada, including three NCAA Tournament bids. The Bulldogs return three starters and nine total letterwinners from last year's squad.

"We're excited about the start of our season and for the chance to do what we all love to do, which is get in a gym, coach our players and train our team," said Fox. "So, this is a very exciting time of year for me, and I think our players give the indications that they¹re excited too."

Andy Landers begins his 31st season in Athens with record of 725-239. The Lady Bulldogs will welcome back four starters and two more letterwinners from a squad which finished 18-14 overall and lost in the first round of the 2009 NCAA Tournament.

"The beginning of practice is always an exciting time," Landers said. "That anticipation is probably even greater this year since we have more newcomers, seven, on our roster than returnees, six."
