Georgia plays the UAB Blazers after last night’s 13-point win over the St. Joseph’s Hawks. This is the sixth time the two teams have played each other in a series in which Georgia currently leads 4-1. ESPN currently gives the Blazers a 61.6% chance of winning and has them as 8-point favorites.
The Bulldogs struggled again to put together a full basketball game last night. After taking a 23-point lead at halftime and shooting over 40%, Georgia finished the night shooting at just over 33% and was outplayed by 10 points in the 2nd half. The Bulldogs have now been outplayed by their opponents in the 2nd half in 3 of their last 5 games.
UAB pulled off a dominant win in yesterday’s fight against the USF Bulls where they saw 4 players score over 10 points each. Senior guard Jordan Walker was their top scorer with 15 points and completed 40% of his 3-point attempts.
While Walker currently leads the team in points per game, second-year guard Eric Gaines will most likely have the biggest impact on tonight’s game. Gaines averages 10.8 points per game and leads the team in assists with 5.8. However, it is his menacing defensive play that should worry Georgia the most. Gaines currently leads the team with 2.2 steals per game and will most likely have no problem matching those numbers against a Georgia team that averages nearly 17 turnovers per game.
The Bulldogs were grateful guard Kario Oquendo was back last night as he led the team in points in Georgia’s win over St. Joseph’s. He and senior guard Terry Roberts currently have 28 points in the game combined and have to carry offense, which has been very hot and cold throughout the season.
Overall, the recipe for victory in Georgia remains the same. Shoot effectively, don’t commit turnovers, and play through both halves consistently. Should Georgia do these things, they have a very good chance of causing a stir. Whether they can, however, remains to be seen.
