Lady Dawgs Can't Tame the Lady Tigers

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) _ Sylvia Fowles had 19 points and 15 rebounds to help eighth-ranked LSU stretch its winning streak to eleven games with a 63-57 victory over Number 24 Georgia today.

The Lady Tigers never trailed after taking an early 6-5 lead and built double-digit margins on several occasions, but Tasha Humphrey, who had 17 points and eleven rebounds, helped Georgia make several pushes to keep the game close into the final minutes.

Quianna Chaney and RaShonta LeBlanc each scored 14 points for LSU (20-3, 9-0 Southeastern Conference).

Angel Robinson had 14 points and 12 rebounds for Georgia (17-7, 4-5), which has lost four of five games and now is in danger of sliding out of the Top 25.

Ashley Houts added 13 points.

LSU outshot Georgia 42 percent to 32 percent and led 45-28 when Chaney hit her fourth three-pointer of the game with just under 16 minutes to go, but Georgia refused to fold.

Both teams wore special uniforms -- LSU in white with pink trim and Georgia in pink with white trim -- to promote breast cancer awareness.

Much of the crowd in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center wore pink as well.
