Lady Bulldogs Thump Ole Miss in Women's Basketball Road Win

On Saturday, the Georgia men’s basketball team fell to Ole Miss in Athens. On Sunday, Andy Landers’s 15th-ranked Lady Bulldogs returned the favor by downing the Rebelettes in Oxford by a 61-47 final margin.

The visitors’ victory was never in doubt, as the Red and Black already held a 30-2 lead with nine minutes remaining in the opening half. That score persisted through a drought of more than two minutes, and the Athenians took a 43-15 advantage into the locker room after shooting in the vicinity of 50 per cent from the field (19 of 39), from outside the arc (4 of 8), and from the free throw line (1 of 2) in the opening 20 minutes. Georgia dominated the glass with 28 rebounds to the Rebels’ 14 boards in the first half, turning a dozen Ole Miss turnovers into 16 points and outscoring the home team, 24-10, in the paint.

Frankly, that made the second half more or less a formality. In the end, three Lady Bulldogs finished with double-doubles: Anne Marie Armstrong (15 points, 11 rebounds), Khaalidah Miller (13 points, 11 rebounds), and Meredith Mitchell (10 points, 14 rebounds). The win was Georgia’s 16th of the season, and the Red and Black’s fifth in SEC play.
