If you’re wondering:
The talk about possibly playing in a third-tier postseason tournament such as the College Basketball Invitational (CBI) or CollegeInsider.com Tournament (CIT)? Mark Fox doesn’t see that happening.
“This is it,” he said a half hour or so after last night’s loss to Vanderbilt knocked his team out of the SEC tournament.
He had said earlier in the week that depending on how Georgia played in the SEC tournament, he might look into the possibility of a CBI or CIT berth. But the Dogs went 1-1 in the SEC tourney to finish the season 14-17.
“We’re not going to get an invitation somewhere to play,” Fox said, “and we don’t have a winning record. I think we’re done.”
“Trey is a very, very good basketball player, and I think he could get even better. I really do,” Fox said. “We’ll sit down, he and his family, and discuss what his future will be. Trey will make the best decision for Trey. Because this is his life.”
As for the other Georgia player projected as a future NBA first-round pick, Travis Leslie: Fox noted that Leslie “has already said he’ll be back” and added that it’s important that Leslie “approach the off-season the right way.”
