Wildcats headed to Florida for playoffs

July 28, 2007

Tulsa, OK -- The South Georgia Wildcats will play Florida for the third time this season, after a 64-54 loss at Tulsa bumps the Cats to the #6 seed in the AF2 National Conference playoffs.

The Wildcats could have moved up to #3 with a win and a Florida loss.

The Firecats did their part, falling 45-40 on the road at Manchester.

After leading by as many as a dozen in the second half, South Georgia suffered a turnover-fueled collapse, and a ten-point loss against the Talons.

Bossier-Shreveport leap-frogged the Wildcats from #6 to #5 with a 51-29 win against Laredo.

Rio Grande Valley is the top seed in the National Conference, followed by Tulsa, Florida, and Arkansas.

The Firecats earn the #3 seed on the strength of their division championship.
