The Augusta State Jaguars realized a dream on Tuesday night as they exploded for 47 second-half points on the way to an 89-72 win over upstart Clayton State in the championship game of the 2008 NCAA South Atlantic Regional Tournament.
With the historic win, the Jaguars will advance to the Elite Eight for the first time in school history.
With the win, ASU improved to 25-6 overall, the second most wins in school history, and finished 14-1 on the season on its home floor. The Jags also extended their home winning streak to eight games.
ASU moves on to the NCAA Division II Elite Eight that begins with the national quarterfinals on Wednesday at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, Mass., against Central Oklahoma.
Former South Effingham star Daniel Browning is a walk-on freshman for the Jags. He has played in five games and is averaging 1.6 points per game.
