The Dawgs have won their last 2 (UTK and Kentucky), but those were at home . Their only road wins in conference have come at lowly SC Lite and a bi-polar A&M squad (edit- they beat UTK as well). I feel good about our chances to end this 2 game losing streak. On top of that, UGA played Thursday so they are on short rest.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has led the Dawgs the last 7 games in scoring and 13 of the last 14.Also, he's led the team in boards the last 3. He scored almost 1/2 UGA's total points against us in the first meeting (he got hot in the 2nd half). Donte' Williams and John Florveus won't put up much inside offensively, but should keep Jacobs and Gueye busy. Nemanja Djurisic has been coming off the bench to help KCP offensively. He's also active on the glass.
Here is a UGA preview of the game.
Andrew Steele has had a long, hard road here. He's had more injuries than a crash test dummy yet still continues to help the team in spurts and provide leadership. I hope we can send him off in his last game at home with a win.
