Georgia coach Mark Fox tragically lost his father Raymond on Saturday after a long battle with lung disease. Then last night the Bulldogs, ranked 170h in KenPom, defeated Missouri in Columbia in overtime. Fox was so emotional in the waning seconds that he broke down on the bench. It was a great win for a program that has seen a lot of tough times. Despite the fertile recruiting grounds in Georgia, the Bulldogs haven't finished higher than 9th in the league since they went 9-7 in 2011.
Georgia hasn't been great this year either, with losses to Georgia Tech, Davidson and Temple, but they now sit 1-0 in the SEC after the win over Missouri.
As for the Tigers, a 10-0 start has given way to a 2-2 record in their last four games, and a loss in the SEC opener. Though they were ranked in the coaches' poll, their lack of strong wins in the nonconference means they have some work to do in SEC play just to make the NCAA tournament. Despite his success in his first year, and his success with transfers, might Frank Haith be in a bit of trouble if Missouri doesn't win an NCAA tournament game this year?
