Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Lady Dogs needed this

Friday February 9, 2007

It’s hard to take much from a 41-point blowout win, but there were two things worth noting from last night’s 92-51 Lady Dog win at Alabama.

First, it was Georgia’s 20th win of the season. Georgia has won at least 20 games in 23 of coach Andy Landers’ 28 seasons. It’s easy to become bored with that milestone, but when you look around Stegeman and think what a single 20-win season would mean for the men’s program these days, it’s never a small accomplishment. Congratulations to Coach Landers and the team.

Second, Cori Chambers found her shot. You never want to say that someone is out of a slump after just one game, but Chambers showed up in a big way last night. She shot 50% from the floor and over 50% from behind the arc. She made more than two three-pointers for the first time since the Mississippi State game in mid-January. I’ve been critical of Cori here because you expect more from a senior captain, but she deserves some recognition for a great game.

If Chambers can continue to shoot well, Georgia becomes a much more different team. While she was slumping, freshmen Angel Robinson and Christi Marshall have really come on. Robinson earned conference Freshman of the Week honors last week and followed that up with her first double-double last night. With Robinson and Tasha Humphrey playing well inside, Georgia has just been missing that steady outside shot to loosen up defenses. Chambers firing from outside again would make the Georgia offense very, very tough to defend.

South Carolina is next in Athens on Sunday.
