    So Mike, Georgia got tired in the 2nd game, but Duke didn't? Wouldn't that be a conditioning issue?

    Only three SEC team wins. UGA ladies fell apart after the 5-1 lead.. Lots of seniors leaving.....so UGA will need to do some heavy recruiting. SEC performed miserably overall...especially all of the higher seeds. There is always next year.

    @Dawggy I should have been more clear --- Georgia played until 1:47 a.m. on Sunday morning -- Duke did not.

    Now, that's Georgia's fault for losing that opening game against Liberty 2-0.

    And it wasn't like the team was collectively tired, it was more about having to use that No, 1 pitcher up -- again, because they lost that first game, they were playing Games 4-5 of the tourney while Duke was on games 3-4 and without the super late games back to back on Saturday night that started around 8:30 and ended at 145 am

    And, Duke was also home hosting the regional, meaning they got to sleep in their own beds.

    Georgia cost itself with late-season fade and uninspired loss in opener -- older experienced team that "turned it on" last year may have thought they could do it again.
