“Simply put, they were better at every turn”, stated Bowie State head coach Darrell Brooks. “They played tougher, faster and were more disciplined … It was just a good old a butt whipping!”

Four Jaguars scored in double figures and a hot-shooting start and 14 second-chance points saw the Jaguars secure a lead that they kept for the almost the entire game.

The Jaguars got off to a quick 8-4 start in the first half thanks to a pair of Thomas three-pointers. Cobzaru also helped the Georgia Regents early - scoring five points in the first 2:50 of play.  A pair of Wright-Nelson three's gave the Jaguars their biggest lead at the time 17-10 in the first half. The Bulldogs fought back, but once again a pair of three pointers this time from Boyce put the Jaguars up ten at 27-17.  GRU would maintain that ten-point lead into the locker room for halftime. GRU Augusta shot 53.3 percent from the field (16-for-30) and 50 percent (7-for-14) beyond the three-point line in the first half.
In the second half, Wright-Nelson scored six of the first eight points of the half for a 55-39 score. Later in the second half Keshun Sherrill (Cleveland, N.C.) hit a three pointer giving the Georgia Regents a 26-point lead with just six minutes left in the game. With about a minute left in the game Michael Graham (Largo, Md.) came in off the bench and hit a jumper giving the Jaguars their largest lead of the night at 28 points, 80-52. Kelvin Howard (Temple Hills, Md.) entered off the bench and hit a three pointer with just five seconds remaining and assuring the Jaguars an 83-54 victory.
