Dawgs can't stop Tiger's big men

Damien Wilkins missed a three point shot in the closing moments of a winnable conference game to drop Georgia to 1-5 in the SEC after the 63-59 loss.

The Bulldogs had no answer for LSU's powerful inside game during the second half of the game. The Tigers outmaneuvered Georgia at one point to take what seemed to be a commanding eight point lead in the closing minutes of the game.

"Our worst nightmare was how to guard their post players. We were not able to," said Felton of LSU's big men. LSU's post players dumped in more than half of the Tigers points.

It appeared that Georgia was going to get a chance to win the game in the final minute of the game after a Bulldog scramble to get within one but an LSU score pushed the Tiger lead to three.

Georgia's offensive woes continued in Baton Rouge as the Dawgs failed to score over 60 points once again. The Bulldog bench was virtually non-existent except for providing a breather for the starters; the bench's offensive production was pitiful.

When the game came down to it Georgia was forced to depend on something other than their number one option to win the game. Making matters worse for the Dawgs was that they were forced to depend on the most unproductive past of their offense when it mattered most; the three point shot is not Georgia's friend right now. Georgia was a disappointing 1 for 14 on threes against LSU.

"We didn't execute the way that we would have liked," said Felton. "We didn't make the shot."
