Georgia Arkansas Preview
W2 Arkansas vs E6 Georgia 3:30 CBS
Previous Meeting: UGA (Home) 82-69
In the only meeting of the season, Georgia dominated Arkansas with Billy Humphrey's 24 points. Georgia shot 51% from the field and 46 on 6 of 13 from 3 point land. Look.. it does not really matter what teams seeds are or who is more tired, Georgia simply has enough momentum to stop global warming right now. After all this tournament has seen why wouldn't the Bulldogs win.
But seriously, I think this game comes down to tempo. Arkansas likes to get up and down while Georgia would rather grind it out in the half court. The Razborbacks must get the loose balls that Georgia has been getting all tournament. I look for Sundiata Gaines to have a big game after his career looked to be over twice in the same day. Fouling out vs Kentucky and then suffering a hip pointer and fouling out again vs Miss State. Gaines leads Georgia to an improbable NCAA Tournament bid
Season: 80-31 (73%)
SEC: 37-16 (73%) - I made an earlier mistake in the SEC record quoting the ACC record instead.
