UGA may or may not make the NCAA Tourney this year. But one thing is for certain. The days of winning and losing unwatchable games by scores like 45-42 appear to be over. This team can run and run and run some more.

Kudos to Felton. This is a well conditioned team with solid hands that looks great in transition. We still need to iron out the half court offense and defense, but damn. That was fun.
Box Score Highlights:
-- Sundiata Gaines had 21 points, 8 rebounds, 6 steals, 5 assists and only 4 turnovers. You won't see a better stat line than that.
-- Levi Stukes had 25 points including a 10 in a row.
-- Mercer had 19 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists
-- UGA had 14 offensive rebounds to Gonzaga's four.
-- .539 on field goals is outstanding
-- 19 assists and only 12 turnovers while forcing the Zags into 21 turnovers.
The Zags may have "looked past us" in preparation for their big game with Duke, but it sure didn't look like it from their 59% shooting or the 10 3-pointers. We were just more athletic than them, we protected the ball better, and our guys made huge shots when it mattered.
