Hoops Update and NYC Trip:

Author-journalist-poet Han Vance attended the Writer’s Digest Conference in NYC January 21-25 in support of my blogs and poetry and primarily my new full-length Cali travel adventure memoir, Golden State Genius. Info: www.hanvance.com

During that stretch of time, UGA beat Mississippi State soundly and then lost to arch-nemesis Florida in double overtime. Georgia is vastly improved from last season when we finished last in the SEC but is clearly not all the way over the hump in terms of consistently winning close ballgames. Adversity could serve us well in a tournament format, yet we must find a way to immediately improve our win-loss margin in the rugged SEC East – where all six teams may be bound for the Big Dance.
