Harrick impressed with Wright

Amazed at Wright's shot, Harrick remarked, "the guy was down Rashad Wright's throat."

For the second game in a row, Rashad Wright was the clutch shooter for Jim Harrick's Georgia Bulldogs.
 
After South Carolina's Aaron Lucas missed two free throws in the final seconds of regulation, Wright took the ball down the floor and tie the game at 70 with only five seconds remaining in regulation.

"I was able to get up the floor and hit the shot," said Wright of his game-saving play.

If only it was as simple as Wright made it out to be.

With the division title hanging in the balance, and a Georgia win unlikely, Wright refused, for the second game in a row, to lose. Wright took the ball and the team on his shoulders and nailed a three pointer to send the game into overtime.

Wright also nailed South Carolina's hopes of a NCAA birth. Now the Cocks will likely have to at least get to the championship game of the SEC Tournament to get consideration for a birth. Even with Ole Miss losing at LSU, Carolina was unable to get a strangle-hold of the mythical 6th NCAA spot from the SEC.

"We have a very nice point guard. He is playing big for us," said Harrick of Wright. But Harrick's statement is almost an understatement of the way that Wright has played.

The Georgia point guard has delivered the Dawgs two of their ten SEC wins this season.

Amazed at Wright's shot, Harrick remarked, "the guy was down Rashad Wright's throat."

Georgia finishes its regular season at Tennessee this Saturday. The tipoff is at 4 pm.
