2004-2005 Season Recap
Landers' Lady Bulldogs enjoy yet another stellar campaign
What would be landmark achievements for any athletic program have become virtual commonplace for the Lady Dogs.
Since the 1994-95 season when the NCAA streak began, the Lady Dogs have accomplished more than most women's basketball teams have to their credit as a whole, including:
Advancing to eight "Sweet 16s" (1995, '96, '97, '99, 2000, '03, '04 and '05);
Advancing to six "Elite Eights" (1995, '96, '97, '99, 2000 and '04);
Advancing to three Final Fours (1995, '96 and '99);
Finishing as 1996 NCAA runner-up;
Compiling a 27-11 (.711) record in NCAA Tournament games.
Humphrey sets a new standard
Tasha Humphrey became perhaps the most decorated freshman player in the history of Georgia Lady Bulldog Basketball following a spectacular initial campaign in Athens.
Humphrey is the only Lady Dog ever to earn National Freshman of the Year, All-America, All-SEC, All-SEC Tournament and NCAA All-Regional accolades.
The majority of Humphrey's impressive list of honors are outlined in the text box to your right. In addition, it should be noted that Humphrey was one of only two players who were unanimous first-team All-SEC honorees in balloting of both league coaches and media.
Humphrey also was tabbed as the SEC Player of the Week three times during the season, becoming only the seventh player ever to accomplish that feat. She is the only freshman in league history to win the honor twice in one month.
Landers earns 700th career win; moves to No. 4 on all-time listAndy Landers became the fifth major college women's basketball coach to record 700 career victories when Georgia defeated Iona on Dec. 19. With the Lady Dogs' Feb. 3 victory at Alabama, Landers passed former SEC rival Sue Gunter into the No. 4 position among all-time wins among his peers.
At the completion of the 2004-05 season, Landers had 716 wins, trailing just Pat Summitt, Jody Conradt and C. Vivian Stringer on the all-time list.
Landers has a 634-199 record in 26 seasons at UGA compiled after going 82-21 in four seasons at Roane State College.
Baker, Chambers & Kendrick join UGA's career leaders listsSherill Baker, Cori Chambers and Alexis Kendrick placed themselves alongside the greatest names in UGA's career annals during the season as each has joined one or more of the Lady Dogs' list of top-10 career statistical leaders. Kendrick ascended to the No. 6 spot on the career assists ledger and will enter her senior season just three shy of Lady Hardmon at No. 5.
Baker moved up to the No. 6 slot among the Lady Dogs' career leaders in steals. She is two away from the No. 5 spot and 65 off of the school record.
Chambers, who accounted for nearly 40 percent of the Lady Dogs' three-pointers, joined the top-10 list of career threes in early January. She and Kendrick both eventually ended the season with 119 career threes to their credit, a tie for the No. 8 spot at UGA.
