Owens details recruitment
Forget a pancake. Georgia wants “Flapjack”.
Zechariah Owens (Eagle’s Landing/McDonogh, Ga.), who earned the nickname “Flapjack,” is a massive 6-foot-7, 350-pound offensive tackle who’s gotten a lot of attention from major programs. Owens spoke to Blayne Gilmer about how his recruiting is going and where Georgia fits into the mix. He also noted where the Bulldogs see him starting if he joins the program.

Baseball: Cannon throws a gem
Georgia Pitcher Jonathan Canon pitched six perfect innings before allowing a hit in Friday’s 1-0 win over Akron.
“I go out every start and just have confidence,” Cannon said. “That’s just one of the keys to pitching. If you’re not confident, you won’t get very far. I just tried to keep my confidence the whole way, and my defense played an amazing game behind me.
Hoops: Crean does not change its approach
Amid one of the worst seasons in Georgia basketball history, head coach Tom Crean says he will end the year without changing his approach. He added that he would do his part to keep the morale of the players high.
“Where I get upset and disappointed is when we lose that belief that we can win a game, because their minds are zapped,” Crean said. “That’s when I try to get them out as best I can, because I still think we can win.
“I see how hard they work every day in training and I see their commitment. That doesn’t mean every day is great. I promise if you’ve seen them, people watching them in training don’t watch them, they don’t see the record when they see them practice That’s what you want You want a bunch of guys who believe in hard work, give it their all that day I see it in this group, which is why we keep moving forward every step of the way.
Basketball coaches to watch
Given the likelihood of Crean being let go after this season, Anthony Dasher went ahead and put together a hot roster of potential replacements. Among the names he listed happens to be the North Texas head coach Grant McCasland.
“McCasland took a North Texas team and led them to new heights on the basketball court, including the program’s first-ever trip to the NCAA Tournament in 2021,” Dasher wrote. “This year’s team looks like it has a good chance of making two games in a row. The Mean Green currently sits atop the USA Conference West Division with a 21-4, 14-1 conference record. Prior to taking over at North Texas, McCasland was a top assist for Baylor, who qualified for the NCAA Tournament in five of his six years at the school.
