LOOK: Georgia loses to Mississippi State after fan tosses stuffed animal onto court

Mississippi State' player made the technical foul, going on to win, 68-67. "I don't know who did that but man, I would be so frustrated if I were his (Georgia coach Tom Crean) team, the University of Georgia, to have that happen". He then intentionally missed what was the second of his original two free throws and Mississippi State won.

After the cuddly court invasion, Crean rushed to the scorer's table and grabbed the public-address microphone to ask the home fans to cut it out, but it was too late to avoid the technical foul.

Since they were only in the bonus, Mississippi State only had a 1-and-1 at the line.

Under NCAA rules, a team is awarded one free throw for an administrative technical foul called on the opposing squad, or, in this case, its fans for "throwing debris on the court after officials' jurisdiction has begun".

A small stuffed bulldog toy tossed onto the court with the game tied and 0.5 seconds remaining was just the break Quinndary Weatherspoon and Mississippi State needed.

Well, this is something we've never seen before. He thought maybe with one fewer free throw, Weatherspoon might have missed, and the game could've went to overtime.

Georgia led 24-20 before the visiting Bulldogs closed the first half with a 16-1 run capped by 13 unanswered points.

Mississippi State improved to 19-7, although their expectations were much higher coming into the season.
