NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Christina Wirth scored 21 points to lead five players in double figures as No. 24 Vanderbilt defeated Georgia 80-64 on Sunday.

Merideth Marsh had 18 points, while Jennifer Risper, Hannah Tuomi and Tia Gibbs each had 10.
Danielle Taylor led Georgia with 20 points in 32 minutes off the bench. Angel Robinson added 17.

Vanderbilt (20-6, 9-2 Southeastern Conference) used a 17-3 second-half run to take the lead for good.

The score was tied 47-47 when Wirth made a jump shot as Marsh was fouled away from the ball. Marsh made both free throws to complete the four-point sequence and then scored the final five points of the run with a layup and three free throws.

Georgia (15-10, 5-5) got no closer than nine the rest of the way. Its leading scorer, Ashley Houts, was held to seven points, all in the second half, on 3-for-11 shooting.
