Rockin' Rob Sherrell's keep the bottom feeding going UGA Hoop Dawgs Report
Posted on Feb 2, 2013 |
Welcome to the Bulldawg Illustrated UGA Hoops report.
Our beloved Dawgs are hitting the road and heading to one of the true armpits of the south, Columbia, SC. Within Columbia resides a school with a total of two NCAA Championships. However, if you just came down from Mars and talked to an alumnus, you’d figure they beat the Russians in the Miracle on Ice. They are a distorted group of people up there with a historically pitiful basketball program. I don’t want to call them under achievers because that would lead one to think they may have had some talent at one point. And while this year is no different, Columbia has proved to be a really tough place for UGA to win over the years. We’ve had some good teams come home losers in the past so we can take nothing for granted. Primarily, because we’re not a good team yet.
First, let’s rehash the Awburn game. Once again, turnovers reared their ugly head and the Dawgs had to fight to overcome them. KCP went for 20 and 10 to record a double-double. Freshman Charles Mann chipped in with 10 points, six assists, but three more turnovers. Teams are trapping us a lot more nowadays because we don’t handle pressure well. And while that only makes sense, it could be a good thing. I’m hoping all this pressure we’re facing is going to make it easier to handle going forward. I mean you can’t get better practice at beating the pressure than facing it all game, can you? If we could somehow keep our turnovers to 10 a game, or one every four minutes, which is still high, we’d be much tougher to beat. We beat Awburn by eight Wednesday night but they outshot us 53-43. That’s a direct result of turnovers. We committed 16 Wednesday. Once again, keep that to ten or less and that’s at least six extra shots. We can’t afford to do that too many times, especially on the road in Columbia.
As for South Carolina, I’m not sure how to gauge how good or bad they truly are. The reason is when I look at the schedule to see how they’ve fared, outside of Clemson, St Johns, Elon, and App St, I’ve either never heard of the schools nor can recognize their abbreviation. Their schedule looks like a Sunday Jumble game and I’m afraid I have no answers. MORG? RID? Am I supposed to spell “morgude” and “riddle” so I can answer the question at the end? I don’t know, but I do know this. They got a heck of a coach. Frank Martin, I think is his name. I know he’s from K-State. And Captain Buzz Cut makes Bobby Knight look like a super-friendly players coach. That guy will get in your grill. He had a lot of talent at K-State and made them a good team. He doesn’t have the talent in Columbia but I guarantee they’re scare to death of him. And fear is a motivator. So this won’t be easy. But Bulldawg Illustrated has been drilling this fact home for the last couple of weeks. The bottom of the SEC is bad. They’re shrimp. We not good, but we’re stingrays. If we can do some bottom fishing, we can post a respectable record. Today’s a chance to get to 4-4 in conference and win our second road game in a row. While Columbia has been unkind to us over the years, we’ve got a chance. Let’s keep talent on the floor and the baggage on the bench. That means play those freshmen a lot. Keep KCP on the floor as much as possible. Donte and Neme are our best two big men. Florveous and Dixon need to be used sparingly as subs only and Cannon deserves as much time, if not more, than both of them.
So to sum up, hit the road to Columbia if you can. It’s not that far. Don’t stay the night because the city’s awful. Outside of the Christmas party at Elaine’s every year, it’s not fun. But our Dawgs need support in hostile environment. So support them. If you can’t go, get them on TV. These guys are gaining confidence and if they were to get another road win, that confidence only grows. They’re several opportunities left on the schedule to pick up wins. This is one for sure. Don’t let it pass by. Even Captain Buzzcut can’t straighten out these Gamecocks. Go Dawgs!
