    Just another tease by UGA Basketball. They play half decent and **** everyone in, then splat when the chips are down. Led Tennessee for most of the game -- folded at the end -- Loss. Led Florida by 21 -- folded at the end --Loss. Led Alabama by 16 -- zero defense in second half -- Loss. Shot slection is like street ball. No one knows how to follow their shot and/or block out for a rebound. Defense is sloppy. Turnovers continue. Why UGA is so snakebit at BBall is a mystery to me. At least Eight SEC teams are tourney bound. UGA somehow, someway continues to blow it. We're talking decades of this same thing.

    Maybe this team will learn how to close out a game. Oh, wait, never mind, I forgot I was talking about Georgia basketball.

    I hope I’m wrong, but this isn’t an ncaa tournament team.

    I was really hoping to see they won this game- just HAVE to win at home. They are right there-hopefully they can get over that hump. Go Dawgs!!

    Couldn't close games with Fox, couldn't close games with Crean and still can't close games with White. It seems to be a Dawgs basketball tradition. I watched tonight and could not even enjoy that great first half because I knew how the game would end. Unfortunately, I was right. Looking like a tournament bubble team. Of course I mean the NIT.

    The comments from White don't give me any confidence that he knows how to fix the problem. But to everyone who is asking why is UGA "snakebit" when it comes to basketball...the better question is why has men's basketball never been a priority at UGA ?? This was a most curious hire by Brooks. And it's looking more curious by the game.

    I had false hope that the Georgia basketball team would make the tournament. Hopefully, they can qualify for the NIT since the basketball program has not made that tournament either. I do think Coach White will get the team on the path to sustaining success.

    Attended game last night. In amongst mostly UA fans. They were cordial, quiet; got rowdy late as expected.

    Thought we played poorly entire game, except for rebounding. 11 turnovers 1st half OUCH. Only reason we were up was AL's awful shooting. About mid half their % was @11. 0-7 on 3's.

    2nd half for Dawgs same poor ball handling, AL got hot.

    it was fun for a while....and that's been a picture of this years losses.

    Can't keep missing gimme buckets and handing the ball to the other team. But keep chopping, guys. Go Dawgs!

    These Hoop Dawgs are a work in progress. Keep the faith.

    Go Dawgs!

    I wish Hill would pass more and dribble less.

    Never led Florida at all in that game--let alone by 21.

    my 10 yr old nephews church league team runs more offensive sets than a Mike White coached team. Of course if they ran sets we wouldn't get to watch Justin Hill dribble for 15 seconds. Barring a win on Sat the season is over. On to spring football I guess

    Extremely disappointing loss because the same thing happened against Tennessee. I thought his was a tournament team but now, I have doubts. Justin Hill has to stop dribbling into the lane and then picking up his dribble!!! When you're short and you get into the lane and the defense collapses on you, then either shoot it early (floater) or kick it out. You're not Ja Morant. Too many empty possessions with the ball in the lane.
