Georgia to face Ole Miss in quarterfinals of 2014 SEC Tournament
The Georgia Bulldogs will face the Ole Miss Rebels in the quarterfinals of the 2014 SEC Men’s Basketball Tournament. The game tips off tonight around 9:30pm ET and will be televised by SEC TV and ESPN3.
Georgia is the No. 3 seed and earned a double-bye into the quarterfinals. Ole Miss, the No. 6 seed, first played last night in the second round and defeated rival Mississippi State 78-66.
The Bulldogs and Rebels played earlier this season on Feb. 15 in Athens. With 1.5 seconds remaining, Georgia’s Charles Mann made a free-throw to lift the Bulldogs to victory.
Also in that game, controversial guard Marshall Henderson scored 24 points to lead the Rebels. He also had a big game last night, scoring 21 points, all from three-point range.
The Georgia-Ole Miss winner will advance to the semifinals on Saturday to face the winner of Kentucky-LSU.
