What to think about Georgia basketball

It's a roller coaster, that's for sure. And the lows have been lower than the highs have been high. Altogether, I think Groo's got the right idea about what to expect:
The rest of the season is going to be a mix of frustration, occasional brilliance, and still more close finishes. They lack a go-to player for those close finishes, and that also won’t change down the stretch. Georgia still has legitimate NCAA Tournament hopes, and we’re just going to have to grind out these last few games and see which ones the Dawgs can take.

Not sure how you can say the Lows and been lower than the highs have been high? Yes we've been disapointed some but beating KY in the SEC opener and the first win in Thomson Bolling in a decade are pretty good highs. 6-2 in true road games. Only reason to be dissapointed is because we may have set our expectations too high. Seriously though, did we expect to win the SEC east this year after having been soooooo bad for sooooo long?

I don't know about the lack of a go-to player. Thompkins has the ability, but he is just not showing up over the past month. Leslie seemed to grab it yesterday. He just kept taking it to the hoop and really provided some leadership. That being said, Price is the key. If we are keeping him out of foul trouble and in the flow of the offense. I wouldn't want to play this team in the tourney at all.

Bnw - you're probably right. But I'm still not over that Vandy loss the other night.

That was brutal.
