ATLANTA - Zac Swansey scored five points in overtime, including an unlikely turnaround 3-pointer with 1.2 seconds left, and Georgia upset Kentucky to 60-56 on Saturday to continue its surprising SEC tournament run.
Kentucky (18-12) is left with a nervous wait for Sunday, when
NCAA tournament bids are released.
Terrance Woodbury scored 17 points and Sundiatta Gaines had 16
as Georgia (15-16) took its first Southeastern Conference
tournament victory over Kentucky in nine tries.
Swansey, a freshmen who averages 4.2 points per game, was
guarded by Ramon Harris as he drove the court before stopping,
spinning and launching the 3-pointer in front of the Georgia bench,
giving the Bulldogs a 57-56 lead.
The game was played at Alexander Memorial Coliseum on the campus of Georgia Tech - Georgia's in-state rival. A tornado damaged the Georgia Dome during the overtime period of Mississippi State's
quarterfinals win over Alabama on Friday night, forcing the
tournament's move to the smaller facility.
