Porzingis had 24 points, 14 rebounds and 7 blocks against Houston last week but Howard sat out of the game as a precaution.

Georgia is taking a major risk by moving on from Mark Richt. He led the program to its longest sustained run of success in its history, and did it with nothing but absolute class. The fact remains, however, that Richt hadn't won an SEC title since 2005 and hadn't even won a division title in the mediocre SEC East since 2012. I'd argue he dealt with unavoidable factors like injuries that hampered recent teams, but this season was a mess on the field and off. Yes, this is a huge risk, but Georgia has the potential to win bigger than Richt has since falling just short of an SEC title in 2012.

Georgia had 85 players drafted under Mark Richt since 2001, 6th most in the last 15 years (behind Ohio St., USC, Miami (FL), FSU, LSU)

What's next for Mark Richt, Georgia?

Mark May says the fired Georgia coach could end up back on the sidelines soon: "There's a lot of jobs that are available right now. There are a lot of places that would take a Mark Richt."


Richt won games, but not the right ones

There's no question that Mark Richt won a lot during his 15-year tenure at Georgia, writes Mark Schlabach. But, says Schlabach, Richt didn't give Georgia fans enough reason to believe he'd eventually take them to the top. Fell just short
