Georgia (10-5, 2-1)

KenPom ranking: 61

Best win: at No. 103 Auburn

Worst loss: at No. 79 Oakland

Ole Miss has an opportunity to get back to even in SEC play as well as pick up a nice win on Wednesday when Georgia visits the Pavilion. The game will feature a matchup of two of the best big men in the league with Sebastian Saiz and Yante Maten facing off in the block. 

Georgia on Offense: The Bulldogs do most of their damage on the inside on offense. Nearly 80 percent of Georgia's points have come on shots from inside the arc or at the free throw line.

Yante Maten and J.J. Frazier offer a potent inside-outside combination. Maten draws more fouls per 40 minutes than anyone in the SEC and leads Georgia in scoring. While he's extremely productive on the inside, shooting nearly 60 percent on 2-point shots, he also has hit 12 from beyond the 3-point line. Frazier is shooting just 27 percent this season from 3 but showed last season he's a much better shooting than that. 

Georgia on Defense: Georgia's defense is the strength of their team and one of the best in the conference. Teams don't shoot the ball well against Georgia, hitting only 32 percent of 3s while barely shooting 40 percent from the field. 

The Bulldogs have two anchors inside in Maten and Derek Ogbeide that turn away shots at a high rate. Both have more than 20 blocks this season.

    How can you have five straight top 25 recruiting classes and look as bad as Ole Miss has this year. Easy lack of coaching fundamentals. Look at Mason at Vandy, nothing but 2 and 3 star recruits out of high school and he developers players that want to win. Hugh freeze has 3, 4 & 5 recruits and he expects them to win because of what they were in High School. Mr. Freeze you have not been teaching the fundamentals of football or winning in life. Mr. Freeze you have quit on your players because you have some false expectations of what they are instead of what you can develop in them. Either do your job or quit. Oh yea, please quit running your smoke and mirrors offense, everyone has figured it out. Run a physical offense that can open up holes for your running backs and then your pass attack want require 12 are 14 four and five star receivers. Mr. Freeze you have problems and you need to know that you are not smarter than the rest of the coaches in the SEC.

    Not every pass can be caught. Too low, too short whatever. Not every Kelly pass is perfect. Records were broken by receivers also. But they sre not going to catch every ball thrown. The loss to Auburn was not one players fault. You win or lose as a team.
