Southern Miss vs. Georgia: Bulldogs head coach Mark Fox says a lot of work needed

Jamie Squire

Georgia is 1-1 with Southern Miss on Thursday and Indiana on the radar next week.

Georgia head coach Mark Fox said his team has a lot to work on early this season, according to DogBytesOnline.com's Ethan Burch.

The Bulldogs, which split a pair of games against Jacksonville (win, 68-62) and Youngstown State (loss, 68-56), host Southern Miss on Thursday at 8 p.m. ET.

"On the list of things we need to address ... if you think of something basketball, we need to address it," said Fox, whose team plays tonight in the second regional game of the classic. "We've got a lot of things we need to clean up."

Fox also said only Tim Dixon played well off his bench against Youngstown State.

The Bulldogs have relied on one player for their offensive production this season. Guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is averaging 22 points over the team's first two games. He's also averaging 4.5 steals and six rebounds per game.

Nemanja Djurisic is the team's second-leading scorer, averaging 8.0 points per game. He's also the team's leading rebounder, pulling down 7.5 per game.

Georgia will need to figure out its problems quick because its next game after Thursday is against No. 1 Indiana on Monday. The Hoosiers are 2-0 so far this season and feature Cody Zeller, who some consider the best player in college basketball.
