Vandy

I think Vandy is a special team. They were down by five to Georgia with 42 seconds left and came back to tie it with 15 seconds left on an A.J. Ogilvy tip in and won it in overtime, 98-96. Georgia is a good basketball team. I know their record doesn't reflect it, but they play extremely hard and shot the ball very well against Vandy last night. They made some threes from downtown Nashville last night. A good victory for the Commodores in a game you could say they got outplayed in. But they hung in tough and pulled it out. They moved  to 21-6 and 10-3. The SEC is a good basketball conference. It doesn't have the depth of the Big East or even the Big Ten, but the teams are all competitive; you can't take a day off or you'll get beaten.

Georgia's first year coach, Mark Fox, has them playing hard, and I think their future is bright with him at the helm. He took his last five Nevada teams to postseason play, and the 'Dogs can shoot the ball a lot better. They look a lot more fluid under Fox than they did under his predecessor Dennis Felton. They dropped to 12-14 overall and 4-9 in league play.

Looks like Ky, Vandy, UT and probably Florida are in. Ole Miss and State would probably have to win the SEC tourney to make it to big tourney. But it's been another good year with some great individual play and there are still some big games left.
