Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Hawaii not kind to Hoop Dawgs

Friday December 21, 2007

Hopefully this isn’t a sign of things to come, but the Dawgs looked absolutely dismal last night in a 76-58 loss to ETSU in the Rainbow Classic. Yes – the same ETSU team that was 4-5 with a 50-point loss to Syracuse just five days ago. Georgia hadn’t played since their win over Wake Forest nearly two weeks ago, and it showed. Freshmen Jeremy Price was the only Dawg in double-figures with 10 points, and Sundiata Gaines managed only four. The Dawgs had 24 turnovers and shot under 35% for the game.

Georgia led 13-7 but quickly fell behind and trailed 32-23 at halftime. They trailed by as many as 21 in the second half and got no closer than 10. It was the team’s worst outing since they laid down at Air Force to end last season.

The Dawgs play Tulane today in a consolation game. We’ll see if they can salvage anything from this trip.
