UGA fell behind the Pirates (24-12) early and never caught up, missing the chance at the program’s first NIT championship berth.

Georgia finished its second season under coach Mike White with a 20-17 record, the program’s first 20-win season since 2016.

The Bulldogs made their first trip to a postseason tournament since 2017, an obvious step in the direction of rebuilding UGA basketball.
