The No. 10 Georgia Lady Bulldogs had little trouble with the South Carolina St. Bulldogs on Friday night, pulling ahead early and making their way to a 62-46 win. The Bulldogs were relentless on ball control, taking it away from SC State 28 times and giving it up only 15.
Georgia shot just 30.9 percent from the floor, but they were helped by the 26 fouls SC State collected. (Compared to 10 for UGA.) The Lady Bulldogs were 16 of 30 from the line. They also dominated the paint, picking up 46 rebounds to South Carolina State's 27.
Anne Marie Armstrong came off the bench to lead the team in scoring, shooting 3 of 9 from the floor and 6 of 7 from the line for 14 points. Erika Ford was tops among the starters, going 4 of 8 with a three-pointer and 1 of 2 free throws for 10 points. Merritt Hempe led on the boards, grabbing nine rebounds.
The Lady Bulldogs are now 3-0. They next play on Sunday, when they face the Belmont Bruins.
