Will he play?
Dave McMahon -- What is Sundiata Gaines status for the next game?
Dennis Felton -- I think he will play. There was no severe damage... He did not practice today, he was in the training room.
DM -- What have you seen when Mike Mercer plays the point?
DF -- He can do the job. He has all the skills at point. He is still young and is still gaining the knowledge he needs at that position.
DM -- Last few seasons, it would be over if someone was hurt bad...
DF -- Yeah, we have more depth this season than we ever had.
DM -- You have been at Georgia a few seasons to see how important this game against Georgia Tech is...
DF -- I want to win every game so badly. I enjoy rivalries, it adds more intrest to the game. It is fun beating your rival, but every game is important.
DM -- Is it important for in-state recruiting?
DF -- I don't think one game impacts recruiting. I am 2-1 against Georgia Tech and I don't think I have a major leg up in in-state recruiting. I feel confident that we do well in-state and that we will continue getting better.
DM -- Tell me about Georgia Tech...
DF -- I just started watching their films, but they have to be one of the top three most talented teams in the country. They are freakishly athletic. I don't know many teams that can roll out as many players... they are so long and deep. They are special.
DM -- Those two young players are good...
DF -- Thaddeus Young and Javaris Crittenton... they are pros, but there team doesn't end there.
DM -- The team has a great record and has defeated good teams like Wake Forest and Gonzaga, but are not ranked nor do they have many votes in the poll, are you surprised?
DF -- I don't pay attention to that. I worry about our development and the rest will take care of itself.

Friday - Dec 22: at Georgia Tech at 7:00 pm
Thursday - Dec 28: at Clemson at 7:00 pm
