Thus said Coach Mark Fox. After a heartbreaking 45 minutes of basketball in Nashville on Thursday night, the Dawgs looked like they would do the same thing against the Gators by giving up a big, late lead. Instead, they got some great defense and had the bench play we have needed all season to gut out a furious comeback attempt to win 78-76.
Four Dawgs scored in the double digits, including 13 from Price off the bench, and nine players had double digit minutes. A complete team effort.
At 13-14, the Dawgs still have their work cut out for them to get to a winning record, but I like our chances with playing anyone but UK on a nuetral floor.
Speaking of UK, the Dawgs get the Cats in Athens on Wednesday at 8pm. It'll be a raucous crowd, but let's make sure the tickets aren't sold to those wearing blue. They don't need the help.
