    Gotta look at the bright side guys. Last time this team lost they went on an 8 game win streak. If they drop 2 then win 8 we would be in pretty good shape. That would put us at what, 25 and 6? I'll take that .

    BLOCK OUT. Gave up 5-6 easy put backs when all we were doing was looking at the ball. Jeez.

    I would have liked to see us go to the basket stronger, when they are swatting everything you put up you have to go up strong and try to draw some fouls..not underhand layup soft toss volleyball setup.

    Or work the ball around for mid-range shots that won't get swatted.

    Seems we lacked coaching on the offensive end to me.

    Defense was tenacious considering the competition, but we seem to have no in-game adjustments at all.

    Mid range game is almost extinct in basketball

    This right here. This team has what it takes. This group will be good enough to win an NCAA game in march.

    The refs were absolutely bias. Very blatant. There were at least 3 calls on Stove that were total BS. Our guys were fouled all game long in the post. Several over the back calls that were missed (purposely).

    For everyone saying our game plan was bad, I question how much you've watched this team play. Getting to the rim is how we win.

    All that said, we have to make free throws. We will live at the line all year. Must make those trips count.

    Georgia played man to man all night daring us to drive to the basket for their big men to swat it. We obliged them all night. Our drivers should have started looking for the kick out jumper more often then keeping it for the lay up.

    Making the extra pass to the open man is how we've been winning. We get to the basket and dish it to a cutter. If you look at what everyone was so impressed with on the streak was our big men's ability to pass. How many assists did Bryce or miller have tonight?

    Yeah it seemed the guys were charged up for the game and everyone wanted to put the team on their back not realizing they have been so good because they have worked well together. At the same time we haven't faced defensive monster forwards like that yet. The adjustment was never really made. Hopefully they learn from it and adjust offensively when that is what we are facing.

    A big positive, our defense is solid and we are really good at causing turnovers.

    Well Bryce picked up two cheap fouls and was getting mugged all night so, idk. Our bigs are good passers, but that's not why we were winning. We were winning because we were playing fast, getting cheap buckets and attacking the rim.

    We shot 74% from the line which is above average. However, in the game we were in we needed to be around 90. MAT is right in that our team philosophy is to take it to the rim. We could not finish tonight but much of that was due to being fouled and not getting the call. Still, Jay and Frank had some open perimeter shots and they just had an off night. Game was lost in the first five minutes when we went 1 for 10. As usual, the team played hard the whole game but spent too much energy getting back into it. Little was left for the final minutes. I will say that Georgia did play very well defensively. They did get away with a few fouls but many of those blocked shots were not fouls. I give the Bulldogs credit for doing what they needed to do to win. We need to play better to win on Saturday. Hopefully there will be lots of Cajun fans there to help them get energized.

    We got nothing from Wright tonight, Stove was ineffective, and we got little from the bench. Miller scored well but did not shoot well and still has problems rebounding.

    That being said, we should have changed tactics as soon as we knew that we were not going to score by getting to the rim.

    But in less than 10 minutes, it was clear that winning this way wasn't going to happen tonight. No adjustment was made. Not going up stronger. Not shooting outside. Not slowing it down. Nothing.

    Hey that's our style win or lose is how swac teams try to run with #1 seeds and hang their hats on staying close for 10 minutes.

    We didn't even stay close for 10 minutes.

    Proud of the effort, though. This team is fun to watch and can make some noise for sure.

    Going to be a fun ride.

    The basics of basketball tell you to get to the rim. We did it tonight. And this team usually does it well. UGA just happened to have 2 monsters playing down low. I do wish we would have adjusted and tried to play more of an outside game. But at the same time, how do you tell your guys to scratch everything and start settling for jump shots? I'm not upset with this loss at all. Our guys competed. If we would have played better in those first 10 minutes, we could be looking at a different outcome.

    Completely agree. This was an even game outside of the first few minutes when we couldn't throw it in the ocean. A neutral court and neutral officials would have helped too.

    I think our lack of size in the front court was the difference, something that has concerned me since the preseason. We will struggle with teams that have good bigs.

    I loved the effort the team showed in getting back in the game, cutting the lead to 2, but you could see that the energy had been pretty much used up to get to that point and Georgia immediately went on a 7-0 run and that was that.

    This. I kept asking why we weren't playing with that pace that we played with against Tech which was trying to get more into transition and neutralize the size advantage they had on us. I found that we were too willing to play a slower half court game which benefited them.

    Other than that, the game went kind of like I figured. I've been saying that our lack of size will hurt us against teams like this who have big athletic guys down low and their guards were rangy as well and they gave Bartley and even Jay Wright a lot of trouble.

    So, as our rebounding goes so do we I believe and we got outrebounded by a decent SEC team. This doesn't surprise me.

    The drive and kick game is what we've been running with lately because of the effectiveness of Jay Wright with the ball in his hands and even Bartley for that matter. It sets up open shot when the defense has to help on the backside, however, the drive and kick game is neutralized a bit when the defender is just as quick as you and bigger and doesn't require the same help defense that other teams will have to commit to and that was a big factor.

    Bryce getting those two early fouls absolutely killed us. He's a central part of our offense and we had to take him out the game for a long period there and the execution just wasn't the same.

    I don't feel any different about our chances moving forward after this game. I still think we are going to give people fits and be a factor in the conference race. Our opponent had more to do with this loss than our talent or coaching.

    We were trying to drive and create fouls to soften them up on the inside. Our outside shot wasn't falling except for Miller so we tried to create some higher percentage shots.

    What? We went up strong in the lane all night. They had two good shot blockers waiting for us and they had career nights because we attacked the rim all night.

    First, we did slow it down which was to our detriment. We are one of the highest scoring teams in the country. You don't do that playing at a slow pace. They are not a high scoring team. You try to insert your will more than them and get them out of their comfort zone by raising the pace.

    We gave up 13 offensive rebounds and most of those were turned into points. When we held them to under 40% shooting and less than 30% from 3pt in the first half, those rebounds directly affected the game.
