Post Landers notches 800th win

Friday January 16, 2009

Congratulations are in order for Andy Landers who became the second-fastest women’s college basketball coach to reach the 800 career win mark last night. The Lady Dogs rolled over Savannah State 74-28.

It can’t be easy for such an accomplished coach during what can kindly be called a transitional year for the program. The easy win last night was the first breather in a long time for a team that had lost three straight before last Sunday’s nailbiter of a conference win over South Carolina.

The Lady Dogs are back in action on Sunday at Florida (2 p.m., Fox Sports South). Landers is 42-7 all-time against Florida, but this weekend’s game will test that phenomenal record. For once, Florida is ranked and Georgia is not. A road win over a ranked SEC opponent would be a tremendous boost for a team that has quite honestly struggled against quality competition this year.
