Lady Dawgs Ranked


The Georgia Lady Dawgs returned to the Associated Press poll on Monday at No. 24, the program's 455th appearance in the weekly rankings.

The Lady Dawgs are in the midst of a five-game winning streak that has improved their record to 14-3 overall. Georgia is 4-0 in SEC play and is one of two undefeated teams remaining in the league standings.

"I think we played our way back into the rankings, which is satisfying," head coach Andy Landers said.

Georgia won at No. 10 Kentucky last Sunday and at No. 20 Arkansas on Thursday. The Lady Dawgs are the only team in this week's poll to win successive games on the road against AP-ranked opposition during the 2010-11 season.

The victory over Arkansas was the 800th in the history of Lady Dawg Basketball, making Georgia just the 10th Division I women's basketball program to reach the milestone.

The Lady Dawgs began the season at No. 19 and climbed as high as No. 17. Georgia was ranked in the first five polls before dropping out on December 13.
