ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Tasha Humphrey scored 18 points to lead Number Eight Georgia to a 105-66 victory over Georgia Southern Tuesday night. Humphrey became the Number Eight career scorer for Georgia as the Lady Dogs improved to 3-0. She passedd Tracy Henderson and now has 1,772 points.
Five more Lady Dogs scored in double figures, including Christy Marshall, who came off the bench to score a career-high 17 points, hitting eight of nine shots. Ashley Houts scored 16, Lindsey Moss 15, Angel Robinson 12 and Megan Darrah 11.
Shawnda Atwood led Georgia Southern (1-2) with 16 points. Darrah scored seven of Georgia's first 13 points, going back-door for a layup, running the floor in transition and spotting up for a three as the Lady Dogs bolted to a 13-2 lead. The Lady Eagles scored only one field goal in the first nine minutes.
Georgia built a 24-4 lead after reserve Danielle Taylor intercepted a pass and went coast-to-coast for a layup. All this happened before Humphrey scored her first point.

The Lady Eagles played without senior Tiffany Brown, an All-Southern Conference performer last year when she averaged 15 points a game. She has been suspended for the first six games of the season.
