Chris Daniels to Indonesia

Chris Daniels is now playing in Jakarta, Indonesia, with the Indonesia Warriors (sometimes called by the team's former name, Satria Muda) of the ASEAN Basketball League. 

Jakarta is the capital city of Indonesia, with a population of over 10 million residents.  ASEAN is the association of southeast nations, a group of ten countries in southeast Asia.  Besides Indonesia, ASEAN includes the countries of Singapore, Thailand, the Phillipines and Vietnam, to name a few.

Daniels lines up next to a familiar face on Indonesia's front line.  Former UGA hoops teammate Steve Thomas starts for the Warriors at center.

Daniels Arrives

Chris went right to work for the Warriors.  He is averaging 14 points per game through 9 contests. 

If UGA fans have time and want to see Daniels and Thomas play, the Warriors' game against the Singapore Slingers is linked below.

As always, if readers want more background information on Chris Daniels or Steve Thomas, just click on their names in hypertext at the bottom of this article.

Daniel Miller Leads Tech to Victory

over #6 Miami.

Miller had 17 and 5, shooting 67 percent from the floor.  When's the last time we've had a post player step up like that against a top ten team?

Sure hope Dixon and Cannon live in the weight room during the off-season.

Were we never in the running

for Quarterman?

Guy is a 6' 5" point guard who plays against Oak Hill and goes off for 35 points.  He's headed to LSU? Nothing against the guys we have coming in, but Quarterman looks like a John Wall-type talent.

If someone knows what happened there, I would love it if you leave a comment.

Dawgs Beat UT

Once again, I missed the game, but for the first time this season, I got a prediction right.  What is that they say about a blind squirrel?  Ha!

Congratulations to Coach Fox, KCP and Kenny Gaines.  I understand that Charles Mann had a fantastic game.  He didn't shoot the ball well from the field, going 3 of 9, but he had 8 assists against 0 turnovers, nailed his free throws, and shut down the other guy.  That's what you want a point guard to do. 

I still believe that Mann will be one of UGA's best ever point guards by the time he leaves the program.

Jordan McRae was unconscious.  Dude had 35 points on 10 of 15 shooting overall, 8 of 11 from behind the arc and 7 of 7 from the line.  We couldn't stop him, but we limited Stokes' touches and ultimately did enough to get the win.

Can we win these next two?  I'm still waiting on Brandon Morris to have a huge outing.  He can get us 16 and 9.  When he gets confident, look out.  Maybe it'll happen against Kentucky.

I'm seriously going out on a limb here, but without Nerlens Noel, UK can be had.  Dawgs in a shocker over the Cats.
