Last week, I said the Lady Dawgs were going to play the buzzsaw known as Stanford. I knew the Lady Dawgs faced a daunting task, but a 73-36 rout is not what I had in mind.
Though the Lady Dawgs return 3 starters for next years’ campaign, two all time great gals will be missed.
Ashley Houts and Angel Robinson ended their stellar careers at UGA Saturday with performances that probably won’t find its way into a scrapbook.
Per georgiadogs.com, here are some stats to show how much these two young ladies will be missed:
Among Georgia’s career leaders, Houts finished No. 14 in points with 1514 points, No. 3 in assists with 565, No. 3 in steals with 264, No. 3 in starts with 130, No. 3 in games played with 133, No. 3 in free throws made 439, No. 5 in free throw attempts 555, No. 6 in three-point attempts 452 and No. 8 in three-point field goals 145.
Robinson completed her career at No. 25 in points with 1188, No. 5 in rebounds with 982+ and No. 4 in blocked shots with 213.
Ashley Houts hails from tiny Trenton, GA, where the best of Georgia, Alabama and Tennesse converge in the valley between Sand Mountain and Lookout Moutain. Ashley Houts’ picture is hanging prouldy in the McDonalds off Interstate 59. For a town that only has a weekly paper, she has been a point of pride for the mountain community that is more reminiscent of Alabama than Georgia.
The Lady Dawgs and Coach Landers will make it back to the Sweet 16 again, but this was a painful exit for two Damn Good Dawgs.
