Georgia Vs. Florida State, Women's Bracket Update: Lady Dogs Upset Seminoles 61-59

Jasmine James' put back with just two seconds remaining in the game provided the difference for the Bulldogs who survived over the No. 3 seeded Florida State Seminoles. With the Bulldogs down one, Porsha Phillips missed a shot with James collecting the put back while also getting fouled on the play. The basket gave the Bulldogs a one point lead and the ensuing free throw put Georgia up 61-59 with just two seconds remaining in the game. The Seminoles were unable to get off a shot and Georgia advances to the next round of the Women's NCAA Tournament. 

Anne Marie Armstrong led the Bulldogs with 15 points while James added 14 including the game winner. Georgia shot just 36% from the field in the game but survived by forcing Florida State into 19 turnovers. Cierra Bravard led Florida State with 19 points. Georgia trailed by as many as nine points in the second half before finishing the game on a run. 

Georgia advances to the Sweet Sixteen where they will take on the No. 2 seed Texas A&M
