Georgia vs. TCU: Andy Landers worries about Lady Bulldogs' late defensive breakdown against TCU

While still holding on for the victory, No. 6 Georgia let unranked TCU back into the game late, a result of defensive breakdowns, according to coach Andy Landers.

After dominating early, the Georgia Lady Bulldogs built a 22-point lead on the TCU Horned Frogs on Wednesday night, but TCU stormed back to bring the game within seven points before Georgia escaped with a 13-point victory.

While enjoying the victory, Lady Bulldogs head coach Andy Landers was still critical of No. 6 Georgia's inability to hold on to the large lead late and the problems that he saw in their attack down the stretch.

"We had some defensive breakdowns and they cashed in," Landers told the school's official website, GeorgiaDogs.com. "It seemed like we were riding along up 20 and all of a sudden they scored and scored and scored and it became a 10-point game the rest of the way. We did make plays when we had to, though."

Elsewhere on the court, Landers lauded the effort of Erika Ford, who finished with 13 points, including helping Georgia storm out to that big early lead.

"She has done that in about every game this season," Landers said. "She comes in and makes two or three great, outstanding played that always seem to impact the game."
