Team preview: Georgia Southern
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2004-05 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
Sparked by a renewed emphasis on defense, Georgia Southern surged to a 13-game win streak, another share of the South Division title and a 21-victory season, which ended in the semifinals with an overtime loss to Chattanooga.
Just a couple of free throws separated Georgia Southern from a shot at the SoCon crown and an NCAA Tournament berth. Nobody will be surprised this season if the Eagles takes that next step, because despite losing top post player Frank Bennett (15.3 ppg, 6.4 rpg), they're loaded.
