>>>full bracket [pdf]

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. - The No. 14 Georgia College & State University men's basketball team (22-5) and head coach Terry Sellers have a reason to head back to the practice courts. The Bobcats earned an at-large bid to the 2010 NCAA Southeast Regional Tournament in Augusta, Ga.

As the No. 3-seed, Georgia College will take on a familiar foe in fellow Peach Belt Conference (PBC) school USC Aiken Saturday, March 13. The winner of the USC Aiken and GCSU contest will play the winner of the No. 7 Montevallo-No. 2 Mount Olive contest in the semifinals on Sunday, March 14.

It will be a measure of revenge for the Bobcats, as the Pacers are one of two teams to defeat Georgia College in the Centennial Center this season. USCA edged the Bobcats 69-65 Feb. 13.

With a pair of All-PBC selections leading the way in senior guards Graham Martin (Marietta, Ga.) and Ty Rowland (Lilburn, Ga.) the Bobcats will play in the NCAA Tournament for the second-straight season.

Ticketing information will be made available later this week.
