Joni Taylor begins replacement of Andy Landers as Georgia’s only women’s basketball coach Sunday at the Stegesaurus, which has held back both the men’s and the women’s Georgia program for years and years. The kids in this state do not want to come play in this dump, which has not hosted an NCAA Tournament Game in 44 years’ time now.
Unless Marjorie Butler is taken off the court 2015 for her horrendous shooting, or doesn’t take a shot, the recruiting which has been poor by Joni Taylor so far, will fail The Lady Bulldogs in her inaugural season. A highly questionable hire by Greg McGarity, Joni Taylor takes over for The # 5 team in the nation in the tenure of Andy Landers, with zero experience.
I said when she was hired that she had to prove able to recruit this state to come play at the Stegesaurus. There are no excuses in coaching, only failures.
She has a very talented team, albeit one who can not hit the broad side of a barn with a shot from the field or the charity stripe.
Chelsea Newton is Joni Taylor’s assistant coach whom we played against at Rutgers. At least she could hit her free throws. We will see if she can teach the gals to hit theirs here.
There is a lot more to women’s basketball point guards than throwing up bricks.
