BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Sylvia Fowles had 19 points and 15
rebounds to help eighth-ranked LSU stretch its winning streak to
eleven games with a 63-57 victory over Number 24 Georgia today.
The Lady Tigers never trailed after taking an early 6-5 lead and
built double-digit margins on several occasions, but Tasha
Humphrey, who had 17 points and eleven rebounds, helped Georgia
make several pushes to keep the game close into the final minutes.
Quianna Chaney and RaShonta LeBlanc each scored 14 points for
LSU (20-3, 9-0 Southeastern Conference).
Angel Robinson had 14 points and 12 rebounds for Georgia (17-7,
4-5), which has lost four of five games and now is in danger of
sliding out of the Top 25. Ashley Houts added 13 points.
LSU outshot Georgia 42 percent to 32 percent and led 45-28 when
Chaney hit her fourth three-pointer of the game with just under 16
minutes to go, but Georgia refused to fold.
Both teams wore special uniforms -- LSU in white with pink trim
and Georgia in pink with white trim -- to promote breast cancer
awareness. Much of the crowd in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center
wore pink as well.
