As you can tell by my title, I am hoping that the Dawgs come out and surprise everyone by whipping Tech tonight in Athens. Just like the football team took care of business not too long ago, I want UGA's basketball squad to upset the #20 ranked Tech team.
On paper, however, Georgia would not seem to have much of a chance. They have Derrick Favors, Gani Lawal, and Peacock as their big men. Tech has a size advantage on the perimeter, since Udofia and Shumpert go 6' 2" and 6' 5", respectively. My head says that Tech will win by 15 to 20 points. My heart says Georgia by 3.
Can we do it? I say, play zone all night until their guards prove they can hit a jumper. Udofia, Rice, Shumpert and Bell are all shooting 41 percent or worse from the floor.
Let's lace 'em up and play ball. Game time is 7:00 p.m.
