ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia is unranked for the first time in almost three years and is 0-4 in the Southeastern Conference for the first time in the program's history.
It's a new challenge for coach Andy Landers. He's trying to treat the sudden downward spiral for Georgia, which was 12-1 at the start of its conference schedule, like any other test he's encountered in his 35 years as the Lady Bulldogs' coach.
Georgia, normally a fixture near the top of the SEC standings, is last in the league as it prepares to play Arkansas on Thursday night. The Lady Bulldogs fell out of the Top 25 Monday for the first time since the end of the 2010-11 season.
Landers says he's trying to provide encouragement as his players acknowledge their frustration.
