Georgia head coach Andy Landers was pleased with the team's performance following the Lady Bulldogs 83-47 win over Furman Wednesday night.
Landers was happy with the Bulldogs improvement in all facets in their game, but especially when in transition where the wings excelled in the open court on Wednesday.
"We're getting better, and that's what we want to do. It doesn't always happen, but we're actually getting better at transition basketball. Our wings at times got out very well tonight and we were able to advance the ball quickly. We even snuck a layup or two in that any team shouldn't get. I was pleased overall with our transition game and then in the half court the way we moved the basketball around."
Landers was also happy with the team's effort on the offensive glass and in particular Erika Ford and Khaalidah Miller. The team combined for 26 offensive rebounds, with Ford leading the way with six offensive boards off the bench.
"I thought Erika (Ford) was huge in the first half getting to the offensive board and getting those putbacks. I think she had five offensive boards in the first half, and three of them were putbacks. Again, I thought Khaalidah (Miller) came in and snagged a couple of offensive boards in the first half that were huge as well. When our forwards are rebounding and our guards are rebounding, we're really good. Of course, any team in the country is good when everybody rebounds, but we still are at a point where we have to make the effort to go to the boards. It's not automatic with us."
With their victory, the Bulldogs moved to 8-0 for the ninth time in Coach Landers tenure at Georgia.
