Cady Lalanne scored 17 points and added 6 rebounds and 6 blocked shots in the championship game against Fort Myers.
Lalanne's team, Oak Ridge High, lost 59 to 57.
Now that Lalanne's basketball playing time in high school is done, both he and UGA's fans can look forward to his arrival in Athens. Cady will replace some of the size lost due to Albert Jackson's graduation. And we need at least one more quality big. As Georgia found out in the game against Kentucky, it's hard to score when the other team combines good big guys with long perimeter defenders.
Help is on the way for Coach Fox and the Dawgs. The question is, just how much? Trent Johnson went from an SEC championship to the worst record in the league not because he forgot how to coach, but because he lost really good players after last season.
So if Georgia is to move out of last place in the SEC East, we need Lalanne and Gerald Robinson to contribute right away. Will we have any other freshmen? Can we sign Dwayne Polee, Donte Williams or Josh Langford? What about still elite unsigned guys like Doron Lamb or Terrence Ross? Are there any other players in Alabama, middle Georgia or elsewhere that can help Georgia to win next year?
If Fox can bring in only two additional players this spring, who should it be? Who is it likely to be? Let me know your thoughts.
