Georgia upset 3rd-ranked and previously unbeaten Georgia Tech 83-80 in double overtime behind a career-high 25 points from senior Jonas Hayes.
A day after leading her team to the NCAA title, Lucy Wener recorded the first perfect 10 in Georgia history on the uneven bars at the NCAA Individual Event Finals.
Second-ranked Georgia routed top-ranked and two-time defending national champion UCLA, 197.900-196.875, in front of a sold-out crowd at Stegeman Coliseum as Cory Fritzinger equaled the second-highest all-around mark in school history with a 39.8.
Stegeman Coliseum played host to two athletic competitions as part of the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. During the Games' first week, early-round volleyball matches were held there. The second week featured the team and individual competitions in rhythmic gymnastics.
In his final home game for the Bulldogs, Alec Kessler scored 30 points and helped Georgia overcome a 19-point, second-half deficit to defeat 12th-ranked LSU 86-85. The victory gave Georgia a 1-game lead in the SEC standings as the league schedule entered its final week. It also touched off a wild on-court celebration by UGA students.
Georgia defeated the highest-ranked opponent ever in Coliseum history when the Bulldogs upset 2nd-ranked and previously unbeaten Pittsburgh 79-67. Senior guard Ezra Williams led the Bulldogs with 20 points, 15 of which came from behind the 3-point stripe.
NCAA career scoring leader Pete Maravich of LSU set the Coliseum's single-game scoring record in a 58-point performance that included 41 points after halftime. His final basket - and the minute leading up to it - are the stuff of legends. Nursing an 8-point lead, Maravich dribbled out the final minute of the second overtime with a Globetrotter-like exhibition, capped by a 35-foot hook shot at the buzzer. He and his Tiger teammates were then mobbed by UGA fans and cheerleaders.
In a return to on-campus venues for the first time in 15 years, Georgia drubbed #19 Georgia Tech 94-70. It marked the fourth-largest margin of victory for the Bulldogs in the annual meeting with their archrival.
