Isaiah Thomas & Washington Hold Off Georgia

Isaiah Thomas (19 points, 7 assists) was terrific tonight as he led the Washington Huskies, the seventh seed in the East region, to a close victory over the tenth seeded Georgia Bulldogs, 68-65 in Charlotte. The Huskies were in control throughout most of the game but they allowed the Bulldogs to stick around late including allowing them to get a shot off at the horn for the tie but it came nowhere close to going in. U-Dub now looks to reach their second consecutive Sweet Sixteen as they take on the North Carolina Tar Heels, winners of a shootout with Long Island, for the right to do so on Sunday afternoon on CBS (click here for full round 3 television schedule).
Jim Nantz and Clark Kellogg have the recap from Time Warner Cable Arena.
