TEMPE, Ariz. — Freshman Jasmine James scored 14 of her career-high 27 points in overtime to lead fifth-seeded Georgia to a 74-71 victory over No. 4 seed Oklahoma State on Monday night in the second round of the NCAA women's tournament.

Andrea Riley, the nation's No. 3 scorer at 26.6 points per game, returned from a one-game suspension to score 31 for Oklahoma State. Her attempt for a game-tying 3-pointer banked off the rim at the buzzer.

Angel Robinson had 16 points and 15 rebounds for the Lady Bulldogs (25-8), who advanced to the NCAA regional semifinals for the 18th time under coach Andy Landers. Georgia will face No. 1 seed Stanford on Saturday in Sacramento.

James made her only two 3-pointers of the night, after going 0-for-7 in regulation, and was 8 of 8 at the foul line in the extra session.

Tegan Cunningham scored 25 for the Cowgirls (24-11) before fouling out in the overtime.
