This one isn't much different than the last one, except that instead of fighting for NCAA tourney position, we are fighting for NIT tourney position. Here is my preview from the first match-up: 

Both teams are down a man, AU is without Spencer, and UGA is without Maten. He was 1 of their 1-2 punch with the point guard, but somehow they have managed to play pretty well without him. Our build a lead and lose it history, actually started in the first UGA and has plagued us since. This isn't a must win, but let's face it, a win vs Mizzou doesn't help any resumes.  So this is a chance to more than likely lock in a spot in the NIT. UGA is a solid home favorite in this one at -5, so it will take a good effort on our part. The bulldogs have a lot to play for, they aren't just going to roll over because they lost Maten. They have been playing a bit more up-temp without Maten, which should work in our favor. At this point, we know what we have in most of our guys, how close can they play to their abilities on both ends? We can not afford a lack luster half in this one and expect to win. 

We have to contain Frazier, end of story. He is their primary weapon at this point and is who they will go to when they need a basket. That falls to Harper, Johnson and maybe Brown. That is the game within a game to watch, slow down Frazier we should have a great chance to win this one; let him run wild and its over. 

War Eagle!
