The Georgia basketball team is coming off another one of its excruciating losses, this time Saturday’s game at Auburn in which UGA led by 14 points at halftime, only to lose by the same amount. It only gets two full days to recover.
“We watched film on it, and talked about it, but we move on,” Georgia senior forward Juwan Parker said. “Games every two to three to four days. We can’t dwell on it.”
In this year’s SEC, there are few easy games in which to take out frustration. So here comes Arkansas, a team with a similar record but a higher RPI (32 as of Tuesday), so it’s also a chance for the Bulldogs to help their cause.
But first they have to figure out some things, including how to get help for Yante Maten. Their senior leader is averaging 19.6 points per game, but no one else is in double figures.
“Obviously in the first half the other night (at Auburn) we had guys make shots around him,” head coach Mark Fox said. “Juwan made some shots, and that helped us. And then in the second half we didn’t do that. Derek (Ogbeide) missed a dunk, missed a lay-in … Consistency is certainly something we need to see some more.”
