Georgia vs. Georgia Tech: Mark Fox says offense needs more consistency

US PRESSWIRE

The Bulldogs' coach wants more balance to his offense.

Despite a 2-5 start this season, Georgia Bulldogs coach Mark Fox likes the direction his team is going, according to Austin Vaughn of The Red & Black.

The defense is pretty much there, Fox said, but the offense needs to become more consistent:

"We've played well at times," Fox said, "but we haven't played a full 40 minutes.

"Our defensive numbers are not far away from being in the area where we want them. But offensively we aren't getting to the foul line enough, shooting [and making] free throws."

Georgia won its opener against Jacksonville, 68-62, but since then the Bulldogs have lost five of six games. They had a four-game losing streak snapped when they beat East Tennessee State, 54-38, on Nov. 23.

The Bulldogs' offense has flowed through one main offensive threat. Guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is scoring 17.6 points per game, which is well above anyone else on the team. Forward Nemanja Djurisic is second on the team, averaging 8.3 points. Caldwell-Pope also leads the team with six rebounds per game.

Caldwell-Pope has primarily relied on 3-pointers this season. He's averaging nine attempts from behind the arc per game. He's making about 35 percent of his shots behind the arc this year.

Two of Georgia's losses this season came against top-ranked Indiana and No. 11 UCLA, so its competition hasn't been too light. After Tuesday night's game against Georgia Tech, the Bulldogs have a chance to get back on track with five straight games at home.

Georgia travels to play Georgia Tech on Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.
