Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Spring hoops

Wednesday May 3, 2006

UGASports.com caught up with Dennis Felton in Savannah on the Road Tour (subscription required). The emphasis was on the frontcourt, and Felton summed up the situation by saying, “We’re tired of being pushed around.” Georgia lacked not only depth but also physical presence. The Bulldogs will add 6’10” Albert Jackson and 6’8″ Takais Brown to the frontcourt, and both will be counted on for significant contributions. “Now, it’s gotten to where you’re not just relying on any one guy, you’ve got depth. You want to have depth to create competition and want to have it to be able to withstand significant injuries.”

He added that he was pleased with the progress made in the 2005-2006 season. Though the Dawgs faded down the stretch, an NCAA Tournament bid was a realistic possibility into February. “I was just proud to be in that position so late in the year,” said Felton.

Felton also mentioned the impact of the new practice facility currently under construction. “We’ve been able to hold it up as an example that once and for all, we are dead serious about building a good basketball program at Georgia. It’s a big step for our program and a big step for the University.” For pictures of the progress on the facility, Georgia Sports Blog has a fresh batch.
