MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The Middle Tennessee Lady Raiders continue their season-opening two-game road swing with a trip to Athens, Ga., to take on the Georgia Lady Bulldogs Tuesday at 6 p.m. CT at Stegeman Coliseum.

The Lady Raiders (1-0) opened their season with a 77-57 victory Friday at Tennessee State, with senior Jamie Thomatis leading three double-digit scorers with 16 points. Freshmen Patrice Holmes and Eboni Kirby both added 10 points in the win.

UGA (1-0) returns one starter from last year's 27-6 squad that reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The Lady Raiders have never defeated Georgia in seven all-time meetings, and are 0-2 in Athens. The last meeting between the two schools was December 1, 1996, an 89-70 UGA victory. The Lady Bulldogs opened their season Sunday with an 88-57 win over Maine.

There will be a postgame media feed from UGA at 9:30 p.m. CT. Coordinates for the feed are:

Middle Tennessee opens home action this Saturday with a 2 p.m. contest against Cincinnati at the Murphy Center on the MTSU campus. The game is part of the doubleheader with the Blue Raider men, who play immediately following the women.
