Our team is so much more fun to watch this year.

These last 5 games you can see the progress. Once we get players in that are more geared towards pace play and limiting turnovers, this team will be NASTY!

The offense looks fluid and like they know what they are doing.


Kudos Tom Crean! keep up the progress!

    I’m starting another thread about this. Please add these.

    Great news about the Christian Brown commit! Claxton stays and we have ourselves a much improved team for this season!

    Go dawgs

    Still need a quality PG but man, could be a fun year.

    Edwards will handle point mix that in with Clax, Hammonds, and Harris

    Crump Walton Camara Ngumezi off the bench. All this team needs is a solid back up PG and another big.

  • bmauldinbmauldin Posts: 3,728 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Imo you want Edwards moving without the ball instead of starting with the ball.

    Coming off of movement and screens he is going to be tougher than starting the offense.

    I’m looking at the basketball portal for 2 point guards. I also see a couple guys not returning to the program that are not seniors. But i believe the core shall remain in tack to give us a big chance to make a ton of noise.

    Could you imagine how crazy the Benz would be if the Dawgs made the run and got to the final four in 2020. Like ultimate home court advantage. Note Atlanta is the host city.

  • brentwilsonbrentwilson Posts: 2,170 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    is definitely a possibility if we tack on some more depth... i think Hightower and Toppin are gone

    I liken Edwards college potential quite a bit more toward power combo guards than your normal SG type. That’s not to say he can’t have the movement and screens game, but I see much more like younger versions of Oladipo/Mitchell (perhaps the better college version)/Harden/etc (if you’re not very familiar with them in college, it’s easy to look it up) when I watch highlights. Not a guy like young Klay Thompson for example. He’s a guy that, as long as he succeeds, we’ll hear about in the NBA 3-4 years after his 1 and done year that put him in the top 5, as a player that is averaging 20/5/5 on good percentages.

    That’s not to say that PG doesn’t need to be addressed. It needs to be addressed but the need is really more on the line of a secondary handler type that can D up and be a decent 3-point shooter than a true PG. If you can get a true PG, great, but the need isn’t that great.

    @brentwilson as you said earlier. Hightower announces he is out at Georgia. He has entered the portal of basketball.

  • SouthGA_DawgSouthGA_Dawg Posts: 185 ✭✭✭ Junior

    I’m curious on any more names out of HS who could commit to UGA. I have a few who we might be targeting but not sure because I don’t follow b-ball recruiting.

  • ThelordjohnsonThelordjohnson Posts: 2,078 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    @SouthGA_Dawg

    Precious Achuiwa SF 5*

    Niven Glover SG 3* (Multi year player)

    Trae Broadnax PG 3* (Played with top level guys his HS career, playing the wait and see right now, from Savannah)

    Josh Pierre Louis PG 3* (My fave as a PG need)

  • brentwilsonbrentwilson Posts: 2,170 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I think Precious is not likely now that we have 3 SFs committed

  • LD10LD10 Posts: 199 ✭✭✭ Junior

    I wonder if they have given a look at Lance Terry point guard from Dalton. His high school team has beaten Edwards team. Do not know much about him but he is rated higher than Broadnax or Louis.

  • BankwalkerBankwalker Posts: 2,912 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I hate to qwell enthusiasm, but this thread is like reading a USCjr board regarding their upcoming football season. Final Four talk? When was the last time UGA won a single NCAA tournament game?

  • TNDawg71TNDawg71 Posts: 1,002 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    If they can make it to the tournament I'd be happy. Having a player with Edwards talent level and not making the tournament would not be a good look. There was a big criticism at Tech for not making it with Bosh.

  • bmauldinbmauldin Posts: 3,728 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    And Clayton won’t be forced to run point... 🤯

  • EricDawgs1EricDawgs1 Posts: 384 ✭✭✭ Junior

    He will have to be special to be better than Dominique Wilkins
