Lady Bulldogs upset again

POSTED: January 28, 2008 5:02 a.m.
Nashville, Tenn. --- Vanderbilt (13-5, 2-1) raced to a 16-0 lead and than withstood a late rally by No. 12 Georgia (14-3, 1-2) en route to a 67-59 victory at Memorial Gymnasium.

Tasha Humphrey and Megan Darrah scored 17 points apiece to lead the Lady Bulldogs.

In the process, Humphrey moved past Teresa Edwards into the No. 5 position among Georgia’s career scoring leaders.

Humphrey upped her point tally in a Lady Bulldog uniform to 1,995, five shy of becoming UGA’s fifth career 2,000-point scorer.

Christina Wirth scored 16 points and Hannah Tuomi added 14, all in the first 11:26 of the game.

Georgia missed its first four shots of the game and committed eight turnovers during the span.

During that span the Commodores raced to a 16-0 lead before Danielle Taylor finally broke the drought at the 10:44 mark of the first half.

Vanderbilt entered the locker room at haltime with a 38-21 lead and maintained that advantage for the first 10 minutes of the second half before the Lady Bulldogs finally made a push.

A three-pointer from Angela Puleo at the 7:22 mark ignited a 7-0 run.

Georgia pulled within six points at 57-51 on a jumper by Humphrey with 4:57 remaining but Liz Sherwood connected on a three-point play to thwart the Lady Bulldogs’ rally.

The Lady Bulldogs will return to action on Sunday when they host Alabama at 5:00 p.m. at Stegeman Coliseum. The first 1,000 youth in will receive a growth chart featuring three-time All-American and Gainesville graduate Tasha Humphrey.
