Georgia Holds off LSU

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia freshman Ashley Houts sank the winning baseline shot at the buzzer, lifting Number 14 Georgia to a come-from-behind 53-51 win over Number 7 LSU Thursday night.

Georgia led by seven with less than three minutes left, but the Tigers charged back to tie the game on a basket by Sylvia Fowles with seven seconds remaining. Houts then drove the length of the floor to hit the winning shot. Officials reviewed the play to verify Houts made the shot before time expired.

Quianna Chaney scored 20 points while setting a career high with five 3-pointers to lead LSU (20-3, 6-2 Southeastern Conference), which got 17 points and 18 rebounds from Fowles.

The Lady Bulldogs moved into a tie with LSU for second place in the SEC. Tasha Humphrey scored 15 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead Georgia (19-4, 6-2) in the defensive struggle. Georgia shot just under 31 percent from the field, and L-S-U was barely over that.
