Dawgs Even Record in SEC. Need a Stretch Run to Make Postseason
Through early January, Georgia basketball seemed to be trending up for the first time in a long time. The Dawgs started out 3-1 in SEC with an upset of Auburn at home and had a halftime lead in Rupp versus a struggling Kentucky team. UK clamped down defensively and Georgia couldn't get the win. Georgia went on to lose the nest 3 with a bad home loss to Vanderbilt allowing 85 points. Georgia in SEC Play is shooting 39% and allowing 41%.
Georgia got a must win last night in OT over a bad USC team. This despite just 21 minutes from Kario Oquendo, who needs to be the team's difference maker. Terry Roberts has put the team on his back and is the 9th leading scorer in SEC. With the one two punch of Roberts and Oquendo, Georgia is a formidable opponent, but they need more from Oquendo for this stretch run.
Is Mike White sending a message? Can we expect him to be on the court as the Dawgs wrestle the rest of the SEC schedule?

Dawgs erase a 12 point deficit in 2H and get to .500 in SEC. Love seeing the strong D and critical FTs to get a win. Auburn up next. pic.twitter.com/17ywF42Jq0— Dawg Stats (@DawgStats) January 29, 2023
