UGA Wins Hog-Dawg Rodeo in Nashville, Contender?
We won outside the state. That is a first for new Head Coach Mark Fox. Courtney Fortson is an Arkansas A. I. – literally an Iverson-like player: slashing, scoring, shooting, dunking at 5′ 10″. But our overall team was stronger. Mc Phee blanketed Rotnie, and we are deep and big which will serve us well in a short tournament. MARK FOX is 1-0 in SEC TOURNEY GAMES as Trey Thompkins played like a future Tim Duncan. Travis Leslie chimed in and our sophomores really are stellar. Especially Trey. He’s polished and may already be done, heading to the pros after being named a unanimous All-SEC. Leslie said he was coming back. But I choose to stop doing what I’ve done all year. I’m not thinking about next year anymore this season. We are playing for 2-of-3 SEC Titles and match up well with everyone in this league.
We played Vandy once and blew it in overtime, after Ware had missed crucial free throws that could have iced it; that was at their funky little place up the way in Nashville, not this coliseum. And they came in ranked to ATHENS and got spanked. We can take VANDY. Tomorrow, (Friday) at 9:30, we take Vandy.
With one big tourney win, we are suddenly a team playing for now, we are on a mission and have a dream.
