ATHENS, Ga. - Tasha Humphrey posted her second straight double-double at the buzzer and Angel Robinson equaled career-highs in point and rebounds as the No. 10 Lady Bulldogs (9-1) cruised past the TCU Lady Horned Frogs (6-4) 80-58 Sunday afternoon in front of 3,681 fans at Stegeman Coliseum.
Humphrey finished the game with 13 points and 10 rebounds to register her 29th double-double in 69 games played at Georgia. Robinson's 18 points and eight rebounds matched her career-highs previously set this season against Georgia Southern.
Both teams started the game slow offensively with the first basket coming from TCU's Micaela Young at 17:31. The Lady Dogs opened the game shooting 0-6 with eight turnovers before scoring their first hoop at the 12:44 mark off a jumper just inside the arc from Cori Chambers. Chambers then connected from beyond the arc on Georgia's next possession to bring the score within two at 8-6. Ashley Houts put the Lady Dogs up 12-10 giving them their first lead since Rebecca Rowsey hit one of two free throws at 18:26.
Georgia continued to build on its lead as the half approached with its largest edge coming at 1:37 as Janese Hardrick hit both shots from the charity stripe giving the Lady Dogs a nine-point advantage. They would enter the locker room up 32-25.
"We didn't start very sharp," said head coach Andy Landers. "I'm not sure why. We did get much better though."
Robinson made several key contributions to open the second stanza by scoring four quick points and pulling down four rebounds. Chambers hit consecutive threes on back-to-back possessions to give the Lady Dogs a 47-32 lead at 13:18. She would finish the game with 16 points.
TCU pulled to within seven off an Adrianne Ross three at 9:38 but would fail to come any closer as Georgia went on a scoring tear over the remaining minutes. Christy Marshall and Robinson were dominant from the floor as the clock ticked down scoring 18 of the Lady Dog's final 22 points.
Marshall made her first appearance in the starting lineup at Georgia becoming the 59th freshman to start under Landers in his 28 seasons at the helm.
