Bring on the PodCats with Seth Emerson of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Kansas State and Georgia are trending in opposite directions, but Seth says this feels like a game Mark Fox tends to win.

NCAA Basketball: South Carolina at Georgia
Yante Maten is the guy Kansas State will be focused on stopping Saturday.

Based on solely the past two weeks of results, Kansas State shouldn’t have any problem with Georgia Saturday at Bramlage Coliseum. Unfortunately, that’s not how college basketball works, and this week’s guest Seth Emerson of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution isn’t wrong when he points out several things working in the Bulldogs’ favor. Notably, Mark Fox teams tend to avoid big losing streaks, often by pulling off upsets, and it wouldn’t be terribly surprising if K-State was looking ahead to its Big Monday clash with Kansas. After all, many of the fans certainly are, and who can blame them?

As we learned, Georgia also brings an interesting clash in styles with an offense built around power forward Yante Maten, the only Bulldog averaging double figures. Seth says Georgia has a deep bench, but they don’t seem to have many defined roles. The Bulldogs have also been struggling to take care of the ball and hit outside shots, two areas that have been huge strengths for Kansas State lately.

Editor’s note: Seth joins us at about the 9:30 mark, and you’ll notice around the 15:00 mark the sound noticeably improves after Eric made the excellent decision to mute himself when he wasn’t speaking to eliminate the background noise from the airport. We apologize for the poor (read: even poorer than usual) audio quality in some parts of this podcast.
