Ole Miss is a tough team, but Georgia should have found a way to win this one at home. Final score: 80 to 76.
We're now 8 and 7 on the year and 0 and 2 in the SEC.
Even so, there were some good points to this game.
Dustin Ware took the ball to the hole more aggressively. He probably has too much responsibility for bringing the ball up the floor on every possession. Maybe we can use a big man to set hard screens every once in a while to keep the opposing point guards from pressuring Ware all the way up the floor.
Defenses are really trying to take away the triangle offense by overplaying Ricky Mcphee. I would even recommend a clear out for either Travis Leslie or Dustin Ware, or running McPhee all the way from one side to the other.
Perhaps the key play of the game, other than the Ole Miss inbounds play, was the offensive foul against Chris Barnes. Looked like a flop to me, but I guess you have to call that one, since Barnes appeared to lower the shoulder. Doesn't help our cause any, but Shaq gets away with that move all the time.
Runner-up for missed opportunity of the game was the chance that Vincent Williams had to make two from the line. He missed, they got the rebound and their big man was fouled. The Mississippi player, a 60 percent shooter from the stripe, went to the line and sank both of them.
Trey had a terrific spin move and dunk. I was very impressed. He also had a beautiful feed to Leslie for an alley-oop.
Still think we're a couple of players short from being a team that can win in the SEC. Let's keep supporting the team and see how the season turns out.
