Digging Fast

Well, that wasn't what the Dawgs' tournament chances needed.  As I noted the other day, NCAA tournament teams figure out how to stop drives to the lane.

The loss to Xavier puts Georgia in a tough spot.  I think they have to win four of their last seven games AND two road games (their remaining road games are @South Carolina, @Tennessee, @Gainesville, and a very important game that may well be a for real play-in for both teams @Alabama).  That would put them at 9 conference wins and basically needing to win two SEC tourney games to feel good about their chances.  Win five of the last seven (which would have to include a home win over Vandy or a road win over Florida or Tennessee) and the bar is a bit lower with 10 conference wins.  Screw around and let LSU or South Carolina beat you at home, well, let's just say a home game in mid-March isn't what we are hoping for.

However, before we get to that point, we have to figure out how to stop fast little guards from gashing our lane for easy layup/foul shot opportunities.
