Nice Picture

Okay, Corey Butler. Time to step up to the plate.

Butler did a great job last year, especially during the SEC Tournament run. Now the issue is, can he be the starter at the two-guard position for Georgia?

He can definitely defend the position. He is an energizer out there. But Georgia will need points next year. And that's the problem. Right now, Butler is shooting just 40% from the floor. He will have to boost that substantially to have a shot at giving Georgia what it needs.

Butler scored a ton of points in high school, so maybe at least part of the issue is having the confidence that he can play at the Division I level. That is somewhat suggested by the article below.

As other guys have left, they seemed to open the way for Corey Butler to get more minutes. Now he is one of just two seniors. He'll have all the opportunity in the world to play this year. I think he has more scoring in him.

Show the leadership and the offensive game, Corey.
