Levi Nets 1,000

Georgia looked good at times and really bad at times in a 70-67 loss to Western Kentucky. The Dawgs shot 53% in the first half and had a 7-point lead, but in the 2nd half, the Dawgs shot just 28% at allowed to the Hilltoppers to come back and win. One bright spot was senior guard Levi Stukes who had 13 points and became the 36th Bulldog to reach 1,000 in his career. After the game I talked to him.

Dave McMahon -- What happened at the end of the game?

Levi Stukes -- We got a little impatient. We kept throwing the ball away and you can't have that many turnovers in crunch time and win.

DM -- Did Western Kentucky adjust their defense at halftime?
LS -- They played a couple different kinds of zones at us.

DM -- As a senior, are you going to be a leader and talk to the team about this?

LS -- I always try to speak up. I have to make sure that we still have confidence to win games. We have to learn from this and then forget about the game.

DM -- When will you forget about the game?

LS -- I already did.

DM -- On the bright side, you collected your 1,000th career point, did you know that you achieved that when it happened?

LS -- Not until they announced it during the game.

DM -- Do you remember your first points at Georgia?

LS -- Wow, no I don't. It was probably on a 3-pointer.

DM -- Speaking of 3's... is there anywhere on the court you are not afraid to shoot from?

LS -- I am a shooter. If I get an open look at the basket then I feel like I can shoot anywhere.

DM -- Thank you for your time and answers.

The next Georgia game is against Valdosta State on Saturday at 4:00 pm in Athens.
