After the Bulldogs surge past the Georgia Southern Eagles, 73-64, on Monday night, Georgia men’s basketball head coach Tom Crean discusses the win and gives an update on the team in the postgame presser from Stegeman Coliseum.
“I thought we had a really good couple days of preparation and practice, an excellent walkthrough, and then at the end of the day we just got going. We were not as good in the first half and had some guys on fumes. We have a responsibility right now to compete at a high level for 40 minutes and we want to reward the fans who were unbelievable. In the second half, we had some guys that got hot with Donnell (Gresham Jr.), Jordan (Harris) Toumani (Camara), Sahvir (Wheeler), and the way Anthony (Edwards) played coming back in. We won this game because we had 27 deflections and out-rebounded Georgia Southern by four in the second half. Those are the things that made the difference.”
