... an improbable win considering how pathetic we looked in the 1st half. Steele wins it 78-76. Truth be told he walked, but I don't care!
It was a miserable start to the game... UGA pounced on us 15-0 and 20-2 early... coasted to 50-35 halftime lead. Nothing went right for us... we couldn't (or didn't) defend the 3 leaving them wide open shots, didn't fight through screens, and looked lost on offense. If I had a dog I would've kicked it.
The second half was a thing of beauty. Talk about halftime adjustments! We held UGA to 26 2nd half points, got hands in their faces (surprisingly zone D worked well), and found our rhythm on offense. Gee and Riley made big shot after big shot... Gee penetrated, Hollinger played well at the point, and Davidson converted from the FT line (I thought he was forcing his shots, but at least he got to the line and scored).
- Held UGA to 1-7 from beyond the arc in the 2nd half and 26 points.
- Hollinger, Gee, and Riley saved the day.
- Steele in the last minute.
- The entire 1st half.
- Hendrix got pushed around inside.
- Blocking out... UGA killed us on the offensive glass.
- Steele the first 30 minutes.
A win's a win and I'm ecstatic about it, but we got a long road ahead of us if we continue to have problems guarding the perimeter. Maybe this is the win that sparks us to great things. I hope that's the case.
Edit- here it is. Steele's buzzer beater.
