No 18 Georgia women edge No 25 South Carolina
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
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.
