The other day a friend asked me if I thought the struggling Georgia basketball team would manage another win this season.
I had to admit it was looking doubtful.
Watching the basketball Dogs in recent weeks had become painful, with all the turnovers and the lousy shooting indicating the players had pretty much given up on the season.
Then came today. Not only did the Dogs win, but over the lofty lizards from Gainesville, with Terrance Woodbury scoring 32 points.
That’s as sweet as it is unexpected.
No, I’m not thinking this is some major turnaround and that the basketball Dogs are going to make a late-season run at respectability.
But then I didn’t think they’d beat Florida, either.
No matter what happens the rest of the way, they have one sweet upset in conference play they can point to.
Never say never!
