since a 53-50 win over Tennessee Jan. 21.

Houts hit five of her seven 3-point attempts in the first half

to help Georgia build a 40-23 advantage at the break. It was just

the third time in the last 19 games that Georgia had scored as many

as 40 points in a half.

Porsha Phillps added 13 points, and Jasmine James 12 points
