"To Sid's credit, he's not perfect, but he's made a lot of headway," Stansbury said. "There's no question the biggest thing is he's been the most coachable he's been. For the most part, he's been a good teammate. His conditioning is a work in progress. Is it better than it was? It is. Is it perfect? It's not. But it is better. Everything about him is better."

If that's true, Sidney could be in line for a monster season. He can be dominant on the court, with a sleek array of low post moves and a shooting touch that extends all the way out to 3-point range.

So far, Sidney is saying all the right things. And that has the Bulldogs thinking this could be a team that is a contender to go deep into the NCAA Tournament.

"We talk about it every day, whether we're at practice or at the house just chillin'," Moultrie said. "But it's not about talking about it. We've got to go out and do it. Prove everybody wrong."
