Our final OOC game of the 20-21 season presents an opportunity to earn what will likely be our second Q2 victory against a 5-0 Georgia squad (KP #93).

Georgia only returns 2 of its top 8 minute-earners from last year's 16-16 squad that included 2020 #1 NBA draft pick Anthony Edwards. They've bolstered this year's squad with grad transfers from Va. Tech, Stony Brook, and George Mason along with a few JUCOs.

They do return some impressive talent in former top 100 recruits Sahvir Wheeler and Christian Brown who are both sophomores. 3rd-year coach Tom Crean recruited the #11 recruiting class in college basketball in 2019.

Less impressive has been Georgia's schedule so far (297th on KP), which has featured a 13-point win over Montana (KP #150), and 3 wins over teams that were ranked 270th or worse in Ken Pom, along with one win over a D2 team - all at home.

In Georgia's last game against #273 Samford, they were down 13 points at one point in the first half, 9 points in the second half, and didn't take the lead for good until there were 32 seconds left in the game before holding on for a 79-75 win.

Like us, they've shot the ball well inside the arch (56.1% 2FG) and poorly from outside (27.6% 3FG).

They've also shot an abysmal 23/41 from the FT line (56%) over their past two games.

They've been an elite rebounding team so far though, particularly on the offensive glass where they grab just over 15 boards/game (we allowed 13 & 12 off rebounds to Tenn and USF respectively).

This appears to be a very winnable game but a victory will require us to correct some of our glaring issues from our past few losses.

being serious, I don't expect to win this game or the next one.

I think we go on a 3 game skid.

Im setting the bar ultra low so I can be surprised, but in my mind This is an L, UCF is an L, Tulsa is a W, SMU is an L, and @WSU is a L.

If we are going by what weíve seen so far, I donít see us winning any games. Some things need to change or we wonít win any games.

We should convince our selves that losing is good. And then we can have a happy season.

I mean who even says that the wins come first in a W/L record. Iím flipping it

We are 3-2 in the L/W standings and that ainít bad.
