Key 2013-14 Newcomers:
The bad news is that Georgia graduated three seniors who were major contributors to the team’s Elite Eight run last season.

Jonathan Hemingway’s Take on the Bulldogs:
Coach Andy Landers guided his Lady Bulldogs to another successful season by coming away with a 28-7 record and an appearance in the “Elite Eight.” This season will produce its’ own unique set of challenges as Georgia will try to find a way to replace the 32.4 points per game that they lost through graduation. The most important the loss of from last year will be Jasmine Hassell at the post position. The 12.7 points and 6.2 rebounds per game that she averaged will be missed but, the attention that she created on the offensive end will professional essay writing services be the most impactful. Look for Coach Landers to count on his perimeter gunners of 5-9 senior Khallidah Miller and 5-7 sophomore Tiaria Griffin to create more of the offense this year. Also expect 5-10 wing Shacobia Barbee to continue her success after being named to the SEC All-Freshman team.
