With game just about dead even or close in every contributing category, the game would ultimately be decided by a good shot by Devan (12-20, 4-7 from 3-pt) at the 50 second mark, who was efficient with the basketball and his shooting all night, and a strong rebound by Galloway following a missed foul shot by Georgia's Dustin Ware. Both teams left points at the charity stripe, USC 11-18 (61.1%) and Georgia 11-17 (64.7%).
