Unbelievable! Georgia Wins 2008 SEC Tournament Championship

The Georgia Bulldogs completed an improbable run of four games in three days to win the 2008 SEC Tournament Championship. The Dawgs defeated the Arkansas Razorbacks 66-57 on Sunday. A tornado and other severe weather damaged the Georgia Dome on Friday night forcing the postponement of the 2nd Round Georgia-Kentucky game. The remainder of the tournament was then relocated to nearby Alexander Memorial Coliseum on the campus of Georgia Tech. The Bulldogs defeated the Wildcats 60-56 in overtime, and then approximately six hours later on Saturday night, defeated the Mississippi State Bulldogs 64-60 to advance to the Championship game.

With the victory and the SEC Tournament Championship, Georgia advances to play in the 2008 NCAA Tournament. The Bulldogs have been seeded 14th and will face the Xavier Musketeers on Thursday in Washington, DC.

The Bulldogs are an unlikely champion and NCAA Tournament participant. The 2007-08 regular season was a disappointment as the Dawgs went 13-16 and 4-12 in the SEC. Starters Mike Mercer and Takais Brown were dismissed from the team prior to the season and Rashaad Singleton quit the team in January. And to add to that adversity, Dennis Felton’s job was in jeopardy. Now it seems likely that Felton will return next season, possibly with a raise and contract extension.
