Working Hard-rick

Janese Hardrick is one of two seniors on the Lady Bulldog basketball team. On Thursday, the two girls were on fire. The duo scored a combined 42 points and connected on 10 3-pt field goals and helped lead Georgia to a 89-57 win over the Florida Gators in their first SEC game of the year. The Lady Bulldogs moved to 13-2 on the season and after the game I talked to Janese and this is what she said.

Dave McMahon -- This was a pretty good way to start conference play...

Janese Hardrick -- This was a big win. Coach Landers always talks about any team can beat any team on a given day... We just wanted to go out and send a message.

DM -- Did you and fellow senior Cori Chambers talk to the younger players about the importance of conference games?

JH -- Everyone knows how important these games are.

DM -- You had 4 3-pointers in the last game and 5 this game... what is with all the 3's lately?

JH -- It is all Cori (Chambers) and Tasha (Humphrey). Opponents always key on them. It leaves me open and Ashley (Houts) open a lot of the time. Everyone on this team can score.

DM -- Who would win in a game of horse between you and Cori?

JH -- It would be a tie... nah, Cori would win.

DM -- Describe Cori Chambers...

JH -- She plays real hard. She is a great friend, too. We have been together for so long. She is going to have a great future.

DM -- Between scoring, passing, rebounding and defense... is this your best overall game?

JH -- One of them. I don't know if it is my best game because I don't look at stats.

DM -- Between diving after loose balls, scrapping for everything, etc, etc, etc... how many times do you fall to the ground in a game?

JH -- I can't even begin to count.

DM -- Next game is against LSU, what do you remember about them?

JH -- I remember Seimone Augustus. She's gone but they still have Pokey Chatman leading the team... They have great athleticism.

DM -- What makes the SEC so dominant in women's basketball?

JH -- The teams and the players. Anybody can beat anybody. That is what our coaches say and I believe it.
