UGA needs another miracle tourney run 

March, 8, 2012
ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia opens SEC tournament play against Mississippi State at 10 p.m. ET Thursday in New Orleans, hoping to duplicate the 2008 UGA club’s stunning run to a tournament championship.

This year’s Bulldogs (14-16, 5-11 SEC) have actually been more competitive than Dennis Felton’s bunch in 2008 (13-16 overall and 4-12 in the SEC), which shocked the college basketball world by winning three games in two days after tornadoes wreaked havoc in downtown Atlanta and affected the tournament schedule.

Nonetheless, this UGA club enters the tournament as an extreme long shot, just as the 2008 team did. It would require another magical run for Georgia to reach the NCAA tournament in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 2001-02.
