Sundiata Gaines added 14 points, nine rebounds, five assists, and five steals while equalling Humphrey's 34 minutes. Dave Bliss had twelve points, and Terrance Woodbury and freshman Chris Barnes each had eleven points for the Bulldogs.

"This was the kind of team effort that we have come to expect", said coach Dennis Felton of his Dogs. "We showed up, were very set oriented, and we executed great. There was not one time all night that I can recall where they scored or even got a look off of one of their set plays. I took pride in us disrupting their effort. They had to resort to the ball screen and we crashed hard.

Phoenix forward Ola Atoyebi led all players in scoring and rebounding with a 20 point and twelve rebound performance. Guard Chris Long added 19 points and and six rebounds. This win propels the Bulldogs to an undefeated 3-0 record, equalling Tennessee and Ole Miss for the second best record in the Southeastern Conference.
