No. 18 Georgia 61, No. 25 South Carolina 59

Anne Marie Armstrong sank two foul shots with 5 seconds left,

lifting No. 18 Georgia to a 61-59 win over No. 25 South Carolina

Thursday night.

The Lady Bulldogs (20-6, 9-4 Southeastern Conference) led 59-55

with 1:07 left, but the Gamecocks weren’t done yet. Both La’Keisha

Sutton and Iesia Walker went 2 of 2 at the foul line, pulling South

Carolina (19-7, 8-5) even at 59-all with 12 seconds left. Georgia

got the ball back and South Carolina’s Sancheon White committed the

foul, sending Armstrong to the charity stripe for what would be the

game-winning foul shots.

Walker got off a last-second effort from long range for the

Gamecocks, but it wouldn’t fall.

Jasmine Hassell led Georgia with 18 points, while Sutton paced

South Carolina with 20 points.

The win vaults the Lady Bulldogs, who have won four straight

games, just one game out of first place in the SEC.
