Streeter Lecka

Georgia had no trouble with New Mexico, putting up 40 points in the first half en route to a blowout win.

Jasmine Jones scored 17 points and Jasmine Hassell added 15 points as No. 8 Georgia easily took apart New Mexico, 72-42, to win its seventh straight game and deal the Lobos their first loss.

Holding the Lobos (5-1) to just 17 points in the first half, the Bulldogs (7-0) jumped out to a 23-point lead by the break and didn't let up from there. New Mexico had over twice as many turnovers (15) as made baskets (7) in the half, which turned into 17 Bulldog points. Not even an 0-for-7 performance from three-point range could slow Georgia, which scored 28 points in the paint. The second half was more of the same, with Georgia hitting 44 percent of its shots and outrebounding the Lobos, 24-13.

Jones and Hassell were the Bulldogs' only double-digit scorers. Merritt Hempe nearly double-doubled with eight points and nine rebounds. Despite a bad night from beyond the arc, Georgia shot nearly 50 percent from the floor. For the Lobos, Sara Halasz scored 14 points, 10 in the second half. Caroline Durbin added 12 points and nine rebounds. New Mexico committed 24 turnovers and shot only 29 percent from the floor.

Georgia's next game will be against Furman at home. Tip-off will be at 7 p.m. ET on Nov. 28.
