The Hoop Dawgs

    This sounds like the dramatic start to an awesome basketball-adventure movie. Cue Epic Movie-voice Guy:

    "In a world, where better players typically get more playing time, one player stands alone...For the first time this decade, Georgia Basketball Studios presents, Pretty Good: the Rayshaun Hammonds Story."

    Yeah it has a little bit of a "he's never blown a save in a day game after 3 days rest at home in throwback unis" stat feel to it, but impressive none the less.

    I know we have Dayton first but I can’t help but look forward to Tuesday. We get either Michigan State or Virginia Tech. Either team will be good if for no other reason than name recognition. We just can’t take a blowout. Like I said I’m no basketball coach but it seems to me we need a little work on our outside shooting Defense late game. The two 3-pointers late made It closer than making them drive to the hoop and score. We won that’s the main thing. I read where a sports writer said we could lose more than the Antman after this season. He didn’t say who. I hope he’s not talking about our big men. Who do each of you think he’s writing about?

    Rayshaun Hammonds would be my first guess.

    Hammonds could absolutely be an early entry if he continues (well, not too early for basketball but earlier than some think). Unlike Maten he has more combo forward skills. He however had a focus and buy in issue it felt like to me last year.

    It'd be a good thing for the team this year if he did, as if he did, this team probably is making the tournament.

    Ngumezi (our resident Savh boy) is gonna be a monster for us down the road. Crump, Carmara, Wheeler's a spark....I love what CTC has built & let's not forget, we're only 4 games into his second year. Don't need to win it all to keep this recruiting train rolling. Couple of signature wins, maybe make a run in the SEC & who knows?? Why not us, why not this team? Some Cinderella comes out of nowhere every year. Regardless this is a helluva fun team to watch!

    This is off topic kind of. I just got Roko with ESPN + now I can watch any ESPN + games. You can probably guess I’m not tech savvy still don’t have a computer. I use my phone so it will be nice to basketball on tv.

    Go Dawgs!

  • SavageSavage Posts: 1,306 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Short week, tons of food and Dawg games galore. HBTFD!

  • AnotherDawgAnotherDawg Posts: 6,758 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Rough start (down 18-6 at the moment). Hope we can battle back.

  • orlandoorlando Posts: 2,322 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Down big early. Let’s see what they can do

  • SavageSavage Posts: 1,306 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Just got in & caught up. Yikes!

    Hammonds get in early foul trouble? I don't see him

  • orlandoorlando Posts: 2,322 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    15 turnovers in 1st half, looking eerily familiar.

  • DataDawgDataDawg Posts: 72 ✭✭✭ Junior

    First time watching them this season and a couple of things stand out to me from just this game:

    1) Big upgrade athletically this year

    2) Transition Defense is atrocious

    3) Our dribble drive offense plays to our athletic strengths, but we often look out of control.

    Excited to see where this team goes as they are forced to grow up quickly this year.

    Waaaay outmatched today but I'm not seeing any quit in our young pups.

    Back to work & keep on choppin' boys, you'll get there.

  • SavageSavage Posts: 1,306 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Future superstar in Ngumezi

  • GeorgiaGirlGeorgiaGirl Posts: 1,854 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I know this is a young team, but you can at least not play guys like Tyree Crump (no choice with Hammonds though), start your only passing PG on the team instead of bringing him off the bench, and at least try to run offense instead of starting out playing one on one. The youth excuse only goes so far, and Crump needs to get his butt firmly planted on the bench when Harris' suspension ends at the very least. He honestly shouldn't even be playing in front of Fagan.

    The tone was set early and it might not have mattered but it was exacerbated by those choices.

    Not sold on Crean, and he's not going to have much time if there is no improvement this year. Different era, and if you at least don't show mediocrity, which would be improvement, I think Georgia reacts quicker.
