Lady Dawgs Dump Razorbacks

(AP) - Playing in her last home game, senior Cori Chambers halted a shooting slump to score seventeen points in leading Number Eleven-ranked Georgia to a 69-to-51 victory over Arkansas.

Georgia clinched the second seed in the SEC Tournament this weekend, earning a first-round bye. The Lady Dogs have an eleven-and-three record in the Southeastern Conference, and are twenty-four-and-five overall.

Chambers hit seven of twelve from the field, her first game shooting better than 50 percent since early January. She had hit just eight-of-twenty-nine over her last three games, and she missed all eight shots at Auburn last Sunday.

Georgia's Ashley Houts scored fifteen points and Tasha Humphrey score eleven. Dominique Washington and Lauren Ervin scored fourteen apiece for Arkansas, which dropped to an eighteen-and-twelve record overall and is three-and-eleven in the S-E-C.

The Lady Razorbacks started well, and were leading 19-to-8 midway through the first half. But Georgia erupted and was up 30-to-28 at the half.

Georgia scored twelve straight early in the second half to build its lead.

The Lady Dogs will play Friday against the winner of the Arkansas-Kentucky game.
