TV set for Bulldog-Notre Dame basketball showdown

The Georgia Bulldogs’ Holiday Hoopsgiving game against Notre Dame on Sunday, December 18 will begin at 5:30 p.m. and air on ESPN2. The VII Group, which organizes and manages the event held at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, announced the game time and television information on Thursday.

Men’s Basketball Fund and Bulldog Club members will have an exclusive opportunity to request tickets for the Hoopsgiving matchup from October 4-11. Ticket options will include seats in the lower and floor level sections. Additional information on requesting tickets will be available on Tuesday, Oct. 4.

The matchup between the Bulldogs and the Fighting Irish will hold special significance for Georgia head coach Mike White.

“I’m extremely excited that we’ll be participating in this year’s Holiday Hoopsgiving, which has quickly become a premier event,” White said. “As the University of Georgia, we’re excited to be play in Atlanta at an NBA arena. On top of all that, the opponent pulls at some heart strings with me because all I wanted to be growing up was a Notre Dame football player. My father had a great run as the Athletic Director at Notre Dame, and I know he considers Mike Brey one of the best hires he ever made. On top of that, my brother Danny loved playing for Coach Brey at Notre Dame.”

White’s father, Kevin, was the Director of Athletics at Notre Dame from 2000-08, and his brother, Danny, played basketball for the Irish during the 2001-02 season.
