What is the problem with both men’s and women’s basketball for UGA ?
The best players in-state have chosen to play elsewhere for 50 years.
The men play in the NIT and Andy Landers refused to accept the NIT last year for the women. That’s bullshit. Everyone knows the NCAA Tournament is not the best 68 teams anyway. It is designed for the 32 automatic qualifiers from each conference and then the remaining 36 teams. Men’s tourney starts tomorrow March 15. Was Georgia men’s basketball 1 of the top 36 in the nation ? Perhaps not.
Will the women be ? Sorry. What good does it do for the women’s selection committee to choose UGA this year missing perhaps as many as the top 3 players on the team ? Useless act going nowhere obviously now.
The women can not shoot.
The men are exciting.
In both cases, our old gym does not need a center scoreboard but a new gym – lipstick on a pig.
The men and women face the facts that they do NOT have enough talent – talent that leaves this state to go play in nice new big gyms fun places to play that host big events.
2016 NCAA Women’s Division I Basketball Tournament reveals names today Monday March 14 while men snubbed yesterday for playing too tough a schedule (and a loss to Auburn) 19-12. Lady Bulldogs face a bigger burden as they are missing their best players Shacobia Barbee broken leg and Mackenzie Engram upper respiratory infection both out and been out rest year. Men have a full squad. Both men & women’s basketball suffers from Stegesaurus causing best players in-state to play elsewhere while Stegesaurus has not hosted NCAA men’s tourney game since 1971 nearly 50 years.
