Georgia has Trey Thompkins who is their leading scorer 16.1 points per game. Washington Huskies leading scorer is Isaiah Thomas with 16.8 points per game. Isiah Thomas also has a 45% field goal percentage. Washington Huskies who won the Pac 10 conference title with a 77-75 win in overtime over Arizona State. The win put Washington in the NCAA tournament. Washington Huskies finished third in the Pac 10 with a record of 23-10.
Georgia who lost to Alabama in the second round of the SEC tournament still got in with a record of 21-11. Georgia lost to the Crimson Tide two times in a span of 7 days. Alabama did not make the NCAA tournament at all!
