Team preview: Georgia
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2003-04 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
The rapid rise and fall of Georgia basketball under former coach Jim Harrick has been well documented since the veteran coach was forced to resign amid scandal last spring. Thus a lengthy re-telling here isn't necessary. Better to tell the story of former Western Kentucky coach Dennis Felton, hired to replaced Harrick. If anyone can rebuild the program under the restrictions it will face the next few years, it's Felton.
After rebuilding Western Kentucky's once-proud program back into a perennial NCAA Tournament team, Felton comes to Athens intent on achieving higher goals. No one who knows him doubts that he'll get the job done.
