We’re handing out some mid-term grades to the Georgia Basketball team

More from Georgia Basketball

The  Georgia basketball record stands at 9 – 3. There have been some nice wins, including victories over well regarded Colorado and Seton Hall. The Dawgs have taken care of business against lesser teams like UT-Chattanooga and Stoney Brook and feasted on a couple of cupcakes in Troy and Florida Atlantic. There have also been some blown opportunities with losses in Madison Square Garden to Gonzaga and Minnesota. The worst of the worst is the loss to Georgia Tech.

J. J. Frazier has surprised and energized Georgia fans with his speed boat style. Marcus Thornton has picked up where he left off last year and is a commanding presence in the paint. Yante Maten is all he Bulldog hopeful had wanted. On the other hand, Charles Mann’s play at the point continues to be a work in progress and Georgia is still putting together the pieces at the small forward position to off set the loss of Brandon Morris. Nemi Djurisic play has become enigmatic.

So professor Mark Fox, let’s evaluate this team and see where it stands. Is the honor roll a possibility? Is intense tutoring required? Who is at the top of he class who is wearing the dunce cap?

The semester is over. We’ve graded quizzes, term papers, obligatory group projects and of course final exams. It’s time to assign grades – where are those dice?
