Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Going for 20 on Senior Night

Wednesday March 2, 2011

Georgia forwards Chris Barnes and Jeremy Price play their final game at Stegeman Coliseum tonight. It’s been a pleasure to watch them develop from raw freshmen into key contributors to this team. Price in particular has made incredible strides and has become a solid complement to Trey Thompkins’ inside game. When Price plays well, Georgia usually wins.

Of course the Bulldogs are playing for more tonight than just their seniors. A 20-win season is at stake, and another can’t-lose result in terms of postseason positioning is in front of them. Georgia did a great job of taking it to an overmatched opponent on Saturday, and hopefully they can do the same against a struggling LSU club. 20 wins is an important milestone not only in terms of lobbying for an NCAA Tournament bid; it’s also a tangible accomplishment for Mark Fox and another sign to fans and recruits that things are going in the right direction at Georgia.

Some good reading on tonight’s game, the seniors, and the postseason:
