With a twenty win regular season under its belt, the Georgia basketball team flys to Nashville looking for some hardware to mount in the Bulldog Basketball Trophy Room. There is plenty of space and these Dawgs would love nothing more than to start filling it up.

  • The Georgia basketball team closed the season strong, leaping beyond Ole Miss, Texas A&M and LSU in the final weekend to grab the third seed in the SEC Tournament to land in the coveted bracket half opposite Big Blue. Teams that win in the post season find ways to improve throughout the season and play their best ball in March. Georgia, so far, is one of those teams.

    The loss to Kentucky in the season’s penultimate game showed the nation what Georgia is capable of, both good and bad. But it also showed the Dawgs that if they play a full 40 minutes of Mark Fox brand basketball, they can beat anyone in the nation.

    The Dawgs rode defense all season, improving in February from a 35 to an 18 national rank in field goal percentage defense. Georgia is also now ranked fifth nationally in defensive  rebounds. But, if the Dawgs want a shot at the SEC Tournament title and the hardware that comes with it, they have no choice but to keep getting better.

    And they can – here’s how.
