Georgia will beat Davidson

Here's why:

1.  Tech beat us

I imagine that practice this week was rigorous.  Not wanting to start the season at 1 and 2, the Dawgs will hunker down early and play to win.

2.  Morris will play

Brandon Morris won't start, but he'll see action.  Anything more than a 3-game suspension would have been in the news.

Brandon will spell Cameron Forte and Morris will remind Dawg fans what he can do:  play above the rim, score in the post, get to the free throw line.

3.  Georgia is bigger in the post

There's a reason they're 0 and 3.  Davidson was really good last year, but they have played this year against schools with bigger athletes and have yet to win.  Georgia will have an advantage on the boards.  When we out-rebound a team, we will win.

4.  Kenny Gaines will have a good game

He didn't shoot well against Tech.  Neither did Parker.  Expect both to bounce back.

5.  Charles Mann is a stud

As I have said previously, Mann will likely finish his career as Georgia's best point guard ever.  Mann has the size of Vern Fleming, the willingness to drive of Sundiata Gaines, and the intangibles of Rashad Wright.  He has changed the release on his shot, which makes him a threat to score from deep.  He'll have 18 or 19 points this evening.

This one won't be as close as the experts have predicted.  Dawgs win by 14.  Game starts at 5:00.

Oops.  Game starts when it starts.  Double-overtime game pushes back the start.

You were right about one thing. It wasn't close.
