Frogs' Winning Streak Ends At Georgia
Dec. 17, 2006
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Freshman Angel Robinson came off the bench to score 18 points and No. 11 Georgia defeated TCU 80-58 on Sunday.
Cori Chambers scored 16 points and Tasha Humphrey added 13 points and 10 rebounds for Georgia (9-1).
TCU (6-4) had its six-game winning streak end. The Lady Frogs got 14 points apiece from Adrianne Ross, Ashley Davis and Hanna Biernacka. It was Biernacka's TCU debut. She transferred from LSU a year ago and became eligible after the first semester. She played 37 minutes off the bench.
The teams combined for just one field goal between them during the first 6 minutes of the game, with TCU taking a 3-1 lead. The Frogs managed two straight field goals to take an 8-1 lead with 13:28 to go in the half.
Georgia did not score its first field goal until 7 minutes into the game when Chambers hit a jumper from the left corner. That launched a 13-2 run by the Lady Bulldogs over the next 4 minutes to give Georgia a 14-10 lead.
After missing its first six shots, Georgia shot 63 percent the rest of the half, going to intermission with a 32-25 lead. TCU, which leads the Mountain West Conference in steals, forced 12 Georgia turnovers in the first half.
Georgia committed just three turnovers in the second half, however, preventing the Frogs from making a serious run. Megan Darrah's two free throws gave Georgia a 51-36 lead with 11:49 remaining, before the Frogs went on a 10-2 run to close the gap.
It was still a 10-point game with 3:40 to play, but baskets in quick succession by Christy Marshall, Humphrey and Robinson ended any TCU comeback hopes.
