The Western Carolina Catamounts and the Georgia Bulldogs will meet up in college basketball action on Tuesday. 

Western Carolina posted a 7-25 season overall in the 2018-19 season. The Catamounts would finish 4-14 in Southern Conference play and landed in the basement. 

Western Carolina made it to the quarterfinals of the SoCon Tournament, where they lost to Furman to end their season. After that defeat, head coach Larry Hunter resigned, clearing the way for Skip Prosser to take the reins.

Over on the Bulldogs’ side, they went 11-21 overall last season, and a paltry 2-16 in SEC play last season. That left Georgia in second-to-last place in the conference, just above Vanderbilt (who didn’t get a victory in the SEC). 

Georgia skidded down the stretch, losing 11 of their final 12 regular-season games, then they fell in the SEC Tournament to Missouri 71-61 to mercifully end a disappointing season. 

The Catamounts are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 versus the SEC and the over is 5-0 in their last five overall. The over is 6-1 in Western Carolina’s last seven road games and the under is 13-4 in their last 17 Tuesday games. 

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 non-conference games and 1-4 ATS in their last five versus the Southern. The under is 6-0 in Georgia’s last six Tuesday games and 5-2 in their last seven overall. 

The Catamounts really couldn’t find any traction last season, losing five of their first six games and 13 of their first 16. There’s room for Western Carolina to make some headway in the conference this year however, as there are a few pretty bad teams in there. 

The bad news for Georgia is that they’re in a tough conference. The good news? They’ve got a pretty good incoming recruiting class and should be able to climb a few rungs of the proverbial ladder this season. (There’s really nowhere to go but up anyway.) 

I’m going to stick with the Bulldogs here.
