As expected, we win

Trey performed a little better. He could have been called for the over-the-back on Leslie's free throw miss. We dodged one. I guess that made up for the missed kicked ball call that Manhattan used to get out for a breakaway dunk.

Not sure what happened to Leslie at the end of the game. His free throws were off and he missed what looked like a wide open layup late in the game.

Chris Barnes looked a little better. Price looked worse. He seems to have reverted back to his two-handed push shot on his free throws. Not sure what's up with Brantley. He really does need to get into the flow of the game some before launching threes. He was 0 for 4 from behind the arc. He's got to mix in a mid-range game. Thornton got in some minutes. When he gets into basketball shape, he'll help out on offense and defense.

Pleased that Ware went to the hoop and got fouled. He stuck his two free throws, which was key to the Georgia victory.

Trying to be upbeat about this one. Sometimes you have to win ugly and live to play another day, but if we don't get things fixed the other teams in the SEC will blow us out.

Hopefully Fox will see the value of playing a mix of zone defenses. We're not good enough defensively to stay in a man-to-man the entire game.

We should spend all week creating plays to run against a 2-3 zone.

We are going to see it non-stop until we can score against it.

Cannot believe how unprepared we looked against Notre Dame. Should have won that game, and the weekend would have gone a lot differently.
