Lady Dawgs' 2nd-half outburst too much for Ole Miss.

In the penultimate game of the 2011-2012 regular season, the Georgia Lady Dawgs (21-7) triumphed over the Ole Miss Lady Ackbars Rebels (12-16), scorching the nets in the second-half of very important late-season game. The Lady Dawgs showed no ill-effects from their February 19 defeat against Florida, although the team started a bit sluggish in the early going and only held a 36-34 lead at halftime. Georgia pulled away early in the second half and never looked back, outscoring their opponent 51-18 after the intermission. Georgia was led by Meredith Mitchell's 20 points. The Lady Dawgs shot a blistering 52.7% on the night, including a respectable 8 of 21 from 3-point range (38.1%). Valencia McFarland led the Lady Rebs with 22 points.


Georgia dominated every major statistical category that mattered, including rebounds (+16), steals (+9), assists (+6), blocks (+2), and turned the ball over 4 fewer times than their opponent. Jasmine Hassell contributed to the offensive outburst with 15 points, Khaalida Miller and Anne Marie Armstrong both had 14, while Tamika Wills led bench scoring with 8 points. Jasmine James dished out 7 assists.

This game mattered: The top four teams get an opening round by in the SEC Conference Tournament which begins on March 1 in Nashville, and the Lady Dawgs as of this writing were still tied with Arkansas, LSU and South Carolina for 4th in the SEC. Next up: Sunday, 5:00 P.M. against LSU (ESPN2) in Athens.
