When you're watching this Georgia team play basketball, forget about "moral victories." Instead, think about improvement and progress. Think about week to week and month to month momentum. Are we getting better?
On Saturday, the Georgia Bulldogs went into Lexington to face an undefeated Kentucky team with an overwhelming talent advantage. The Wildcats were a 21 point favorite coming into the game, but the Dawgs were only two points down with 1:05 remaining. In fact, we were up by 11 points in front of 24,000 fans and three very loving blue striped refs.
It was progress, and it was incredibly impressive. Our guys played their hearts out, and they showed that they are most certainly getting better.
After the game, Coach Fox talked about our ability to play with UK saying:
"The members of the media voted us unanimously as the last-place team," Fox said to the media after the game. "If you guys are right, then this league is really balanced because Kentucky’s very, very good."He's right. If we can play like we did Saturday...and cut the turnovers way down...we're going to be competitive with a lot of SEC teams.
Oh..and ESPN SportsCenter was right. Leslie's dunk over Cousins was the sickest dunk you'll see all year.
