If the season ended today, Georgia would all alone on the night of the Big Dance. Luckily for the ‘Dawgs, its not the end of the season, and it’s only the beginning on February and the midway point of conference play. Georgia’s resume is hardly impressive, with its best and only impressive win was over #11 Kentucky on January 8th. Since then, Kentucky has slipped to #14, but Georgia fails to improve, only decline. Georgia’s RPI win breakdown is as follows: #8 Kentucky, #38 UAB, #85 Mississippi, #95 Colorado, #148 Georgia Tech, #167 Mississippi St., #175 St. Louis, and the remaining 7 teams rank #204, #221, #234, #248, #256, #268, and #306. Now 64 teams make the tournament in March, and if the teams made the dance based on the top 64 RPIs, UGA would be 2-6 against tournament teams. Including 1-5 against teams ranking 1-25. Georgia’s losses include Kentucky, Tennessee at home, Florida at home, Vanderbilt, Temple, and Notre Dame, all teams planning on dancing with the exception of Vanderbilt perhaps. Georgia has had the chance to put themselves in a good position entering March with early non-conference wins, however, key mistakes like missed free throws and lack of rebounding has left the ‘Dawgs short in a few games. And Trey Thompkins continues to struggle with his shooting this year, down in all categories, for example, field goals, 3-pt field goals, and most importantly free throws. Georgia is predicted as a 8 or 9 seed this year, however I predict the ‘Dawgs will enter the dance as a 10-seed after the SEC tournament in Atlanta. The ‘Dawgs have an excellent chance to improve their quality wins with another game against Florida, Vanderbilt at home, Xavier at home, and Tennessee. Hopefully the ‘Dawgs can find their streak and turn it on before March because expectations are high this year in Athens.
