ATHENS, Ga. (AP) – Gerald Robinson says playing against Southeastern Conference point guards should prepare him for his NCAA tournament challenge against Washington’s Isaiah Thomas.
The problem is Robinson and his teammates can’t name a guard in the SEC who compares with the Huskies’ 5-foot-9 star. Georgia coach Mark Fox says Thomas is “unique” and can’t even be compared with another former 5-foot-9 Washington star, Nate Washington, who is now in the NBA with Oklahoma City.
Fox says Thomas is “terrific” and is “a better player” than Robinson.
Robinson and Dustin Ware are expected to lead Georgia’s defensive efforts against Washington in Friday night’s game in Charlotte.
The Bulldogs practiced in Athens on Wednesday before leaving for
their bus trip to Charlotte.
