On Friday night, the UGA Basketball program entered into a new era with the advent of “BasketBash.” In effort with University Union, UGA Athletics sponsored a night of fun for students and fans to get excited for the upcoming Basketball season!
BasketBash was a perfect opportunity to ignite the fan base for the upcoming basketball season. If you didn’t attend a game last season, you probably haven’t seen the beautiful renovations to Stegeman Coliseum. The football season ends in a few months, but basketball season continues through the spring! They’re a great opportunity to visit Athens, especially during big SEC matches like South Carolina and Kentucky!
Grab a bite to eat before or after the game at Cali-n-Tito’sor head to Five Points for fine cuisine at Hugh Acheson’s Five & Ten. Any true Georgia sports fan must visit the Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall, filled with UGA athletics treasures. We know that once you get here, you won’t want to leave so reserve your spot at one of Athens’ spectacular hotels.
The men’s basketball season kicks-off November 2ndagainst Young Harris College and the women’s team begins play November 11th versus Rutgers.
