The Madd MAn - Mark Miller
I know that, even though I live right here in North Georgia, I seldom devote an entire piece to a University of Georgia team. I really seldom see the need to do so since so many in the area gush over everything that happens in Bulldog athletics.

Still, I feel compelled to congratulate head coach Mark Fox and the Georgia basketball team for a very solid season. I have believed all along that Fox is a very good coach who inherited a program with zero momentum and very little talent.

For some reason, Fox has really struggled to bring in talent even though the state of Georgia does turn out some quality players. The occasional big talent player to sign with UGA seems to bolt for the NBA first chance he gets. What Fox needs is a couple of players who come in, raise the level of the program and stay long enough to put the Bulldogs firmly on the map. Success breeds success. We saw this play out at Florida where they were a football school until Billy Donovan elevated the basketball program to a status that allows him to recruit against the traditional powerhouses. It does work.

Mark Fox has made some progress in this direction already by putting a couple of players in the NBA. The next step must be making the NCAA tournament and making a little noise once he gets there. Players want to know they are going to play in the Big Dance. It is their opportunity to showcase themselves to the world.

Following a tough loss to the Kentucky, the best team in the country, where they were tied at the half, the Bulldogs are 19-10 overall and 10-7 in conference play. Let`s assume the worst, which is very unlikely, and Georgia loses the final regular season game to Auburn and their first game in the SEC Tournament. The Bulldogs would finish 19-12 overall and 10-9 in conference play. In my opinion, Georgia would still be in the Big Dance unless several teams win their conference tournaments that would not have gotten in otherwise. Which is to say that Georgia is almost certainly in the NCAA Tournament.

What is on the line now, is seeding. Theoretically, the better your seeding the easier the path to the Final Four. If Georgia were to defeat Auburn and then make it all the way to the championship game in the SEC Tournament, I see the Bulldogs as perhaps as high as a 6 or 7 seed depending on what some others do, especially if Georgia plays Kentucky tough once again. I think the tournament committee would take into consideration that many of the team`s losses were while they were shorthanded due to injury. Georgia has some quality wins over Seton Hall, Kansas State and a two game sweep of Ole Miss, but also has bad losses to South Carolina and Auburn. It is a respectable if not spectacular resume.

This is Mark Fox`s chance to put his team in contention. It is a chance for him to make a name for himself and the Georgia basketball program. The Bulldogs need to recruit better and that begins with being relevant. Quite frankly, it has been a long time since this program has truly been relevant. A Sweet 16 appearance would certainly be a step in the right direction. A Final Four appearance would get recruits attention nationwide. The next few weeks are as important to Georgia basketball as any stretch of games in decades. Enjoy them Bulldogs fans. That is what games like these are for.

  • Hawks fall short in GSC tourney opener - As the final seconds clicked off the clock, the Shorter Hawks saw the man who has been their point producer all season long make one final move to the basket.

The loss closed out the season for the Hawks, who compiled an 18-11 record, while Union (20-9) advances to the tournament semifinals to be held Friday in Birmingham, Ala., at Samford University`s Pete Hanna Centre.

Shorter was able to stay within striking distance at the half when Chris Daniels scored on the transition as the halftime buzzer sounded and leaving the Hawks down by one at the break, 39-38. Shorter carried the momentum over into the second half and with 15:16 to go Kordario Fleming scored on a follow-up and the ensuring foul shots to give the Hawks the lead for the first time since the opening minutes, 50-47. From that point on, the two teams traded punch for punch. With 1:31 left to play, Daniels scored inside giving Shorter a 73-71 advantage but that, however, would prove to be the Hawks` final lead of the night.
