Out of the
Preface: I have no idea why in the blue hell we're scheduling Valdosta.
The Dawgs had been waiting to showcase new power forward Takais Brown (6'8" 240+ lbs), and they finally got their chance. Brown was re-instated after sitting out the first two games with academic problems. The Dawgs rolled in his debut beating Valdosta 105-74. I wasn't at the game so I can only assume it was Valdosta State and not Valdosta High School. Although, is there really a difference from a hoops standpoint?
Anyway, Brown scored 23 points and pulled 7 rebounds in 19 minutes. He started a bit rusty by his own admission, but came on strong once he settled down. He's the player that caused Singleton to tell the AJC, "Wait 'til you see him. He's a man's man."
