Leading The Way

Entering Thursday, the Lady Bulldogs have lost 2 of their last 3 games. On Thursday they challanged SEC foe Vanderbilt. Vandy came in 16-2 and in the top-20. Freshman point guard Ashley Houts apparently didn't care. Ashley scored a career-high 21 points and dished out 4 assists in a 83-71 victory for Georgia. After the game I talked to her about the win.

Dave McMahon -- It must be great having Georgia in the win column again?

Ashley Houts -- It does. The most important thing for us is to improve every night and get the win. I am so glad we won.

DM -- The team trailed at half, what adjustments were made?

AH -- They got several 3-pointers in the first half. We felt like we had to disrupt that and we did.

DM -- You scored 21 points, do you remember your last 20 point game?

AH -- It's been awhile, but I don't pay any attention to that.

DM -- Several times in the game, Vanderbilt's defense forced Georgia to use the whole shot clock and put up a poor shot at the buzzer, how often during a possession do you look at the shot clock?

AH -- The point guard will look at every position. Sometimes I don't pay attention to it as much until I hear the crowd yelling the countdown.

DM -- You have seen half of the SEC so far, is it as tough as you thought or is it tougher?

AH -- It is as tough as I thought. SEC is one of the best and I expected that. Every team can beat any team on any night.

DM -- Many of the point guards are from big cities throughout the country. You are from Trenton, Georgia... how big is Trenton?

AH -- I don't know. Probably 17,000-18,000 people.

DM -- Is Trenton known for anything?

AH -- I don't think so.
