The Kentucky game in Lexington on Tuesday, Jan. 17 will air on ESPN, and the home date with the Wildcats on Saturday, Feb. 11 will be televised on ESPN or ESPN2.
Tip times and television information for non-conference games will be announced at a later date.

The Bulldogs will officially open practice for head coach Mike White’s first season next Monday, September. 26. White arrives in Athens after averaging more than 22 wins per season in 11 years as the head coach at Louisiana Tech (2012-15) and Florida (2015-22). Those teams earned postseason bids in each of the last nine possible seasons, and Florida was a consensus pick for the 2020 NCAA Tournament before it was cancelled.
Georgia’s 2022-23 roster features five returning letterwinners who accounted for more than 60 percent of the Bulldogs’ scoring last season and nine newcomers – six transfers and three freshmen.
Returnees Kario Oquendo and Braelen Bridges were two of the SEC’s most productive players last season. Oquendo is the top returning scoring in league play after averaging 18.3 points per game in SEC action. Bridges led the SEC and ranked No. 7 nationally in field goal percentage, connecting on 63.4 percent of his shots from the floor.
Georgia’s six transfers include five players whose previous teams reached the NCAA Tournament during the 2021 or 2022 seasons and Terry Roberts, the 2022 Missouri Valley Conference Newcomer of the Year at Bradley.
