Accolades for Lady Bulldogs

While most of the attention has been on the Georgia men's basketball team enjoying a solid season, the women aren't doing too shabby themselves.

The Lady Bulldogs (20-9 overall, 10-6 in the SEC) have a bye into the quarterfinals of the SEC tournament, which starts Thursday in Nashville. Head coach Andy Landers' team is the No. 4 seed and will play Friday at 7:30 p.m. against the winner of the first-round game between No. 5 South Carolina and No. 12 Ole Miss.

In addition, Georgia senior Porsha Phillips was named a first-team all-SEC pick on Tuesday in a vote of the league coaches. Phillips (11.1 ppg, 10.7 rpg) is on pace to average a double-double, and would be the first Bulldog to do so in a quarter-century, according to UGA.

Sophomore Jasmine James, who is leading Georgia with 12.1 points per game, was also made a second-team all-SEC pick by the coaches.

And because no basketball blog post would be complete without the initials RPI: The Georgia women rank 34th in the RPI, according to this site. Under Landers, Georgia has been to 27 of the past 29 NCAA tournaments.
