Post Lady Dogs cruise in SEC opener

Friday January 5, 2007

Cori Chambers and Janese Hardrick combined for 42 points as Georgia trounced Florida 89-57. Chambers had 16 points within about 12 minutes, and Hardrick took over in the second half. Florida’s strategy to pack inside on Tasha Humphrey resulted in a frustrating night for the junior forward, but the outside shooters made them pay for it. The game was over by halftime as Georgia built nearly a 30-point lead. Things got predictably sloppy in the second half as reserves came in and out, but things were well in hand.

I was impressed with the defense. Hardrick in particular was very active. Though not everyone shot well, I thought most of the team was alert and doing the little things on both ends of the court. Angel Robinson impressed with some nice shots when she got loose inside. The bench play of Robinson and Christy Marshall was a good shot in the arm.

The Lady Dogs head to LSU for a 3:00 game on Sunday afternoon. They’ve come up close against LSU in the past couple of years, but it’s time to end a five-game losing streak to LSU and break through and reclaim some position in the SEC heirarchy.
