Sure it's a bold prediction, but with the exception of the most recent history, we always beat Tech at the Steg.
This game sets up well for us.
1) It's at home.
Hopefully we'll have a good, noisy crowd.
2) It's early in the season
On paper, Tech has the better team. However, their talent might not gel as well during the first half of November as it will next month, when we usually play them. If an upset is to happen, better to catch the superior team early, rather than late.
3) Guards' Game
The new emphasis on hand-checking makes college basketball even more of a guards' game. That should neutralize some of Tech's size in the post, and play to the advantage of UGA's physical guards, Mann & Gaines.
4) Morris vs. Bolden
UGA has apparently suspended Brandon Morris. He won't play tonight. Bad news for Georgia, but the loss of Brandon and his 4 points and 2 boards is offset by Tech's loss of Chris Bolden and Bolden's 7 points and 2 boards.
Dawgs win 72 to 61.
