What did Georgia Basketball Accomplish in 2009-2010?

The Hoop Dawgs finished with a losing record (14-17) and didn't get accepted to the NCAA tourney or the NIT, but that doesn't mean that this season was a disaster. A few quick facts:

- Georgia hadn't beaten both Florida and Tennessee in the same season since 2003-2004... until this season.

- Georgia continued their long-running home-win streak against Georgia Tech.

- As David Hale pointed out today, Georgia went 4-8 in games against NCAA tournament teams. That doesn't sound too great, but just think about it. Winning four NCAA tourney games gets a team to the Final Four. This Dawgs squad can contend with anyone, and they showed that many times this season.

- And finally, Georgia basketball gave us some great moments, including a plethora of Travis Leslie dunks and Trey Thompkins domination.

It wasn't a great year by any stretch, but the Dawgs have a lot to look forward to in 2010-2011.

  1. they took Kentucky to the wire..(the SEC season and tourney champs)

    They won against 4 of the 5 teams in the East.
    They established a great home court advantage for the fans who came.

    Most of all they brought HOPE. There wasnt a single game they played in conference that we didnt think they could win.

    They found a coach that we hope stays forever. they accomplished a lot.

    Biggest feat, they got me there twice in the same season for the first time since...EVER

    Go Dawgs
