Georgia Bulldogs vs. Alabama A&M Bulldogs Pick & Prediction DECEMBER 30th 2023

Georgia aims to extend a pair of pronounced winning streaks on Saturday afternoon when it hosts Alabama A&M in Athens, Ga.

Jabri Abdur-Rahim scored all 18 of his points in the first half to lead Georgia (9-3) to a 78-60 win over North Florida on Dec. 22. Abdur-Rahim sank a career high-tying five 3-pointers for Georgia, which converted a season-best 11 times beyond the arc to push its overall winning streak to seven games and home winning streak to eight games.

“We’ve got some momentum. We continue to get better in some areas, but overall, we have to get a lot better in a few to be competitive in our league, as we know,” Georgia coach Mike White said.

“And we don’t have a lot of time left. Got one more tune-up in Alabama A&M, and our guys need a mental and physical break. When we come back, we’ll get back to work. We have to rebound better. We have to defend better. We have to be more efficient offensively.”

Georgia finished with a season-best 21 assists on 27 made field goals en route to scoring at least 75 points for the fourth time in its last five games.

Abdur-Rahim averages a team-best 13.7 points on the season and Noah Thomasson contributes 12.8 for Georgia.

While Georgia is ascending, Alabama A&M (1-11) is plummeting after dropping its sixth straight game.

Chad Moodie collected 13 points and 11 rebounds and Jayland Randall added 12 points in an 83-67 setback to South Alabama on Dec. 21.

Dailin Smith, who averages a team-best 14.2 points per game, was limited to just six on 2-of-7 shooting from the floor versus the Jaguars.

“Dailin Smith is the epitome of AAMU athletics. The kid didn’t play high school basketball or AAU basketball. He comes here and gets developed,” Alabama A&M coach Otis Hughley Jr. said recently. “… I’m really excited about what he’s done. I’m happy for his progress.”
