ATHENS, Ga.(AP) -- Porsha Phillips and Jasmine James each scored 15 points and No. 21 Georgia held off No. 13 Oklahoma's second-half comeback for a 62-51 victory Sunday.

Georgia led by 13 points early in the second half only to see Oklahoma pull even at 43 with 6:48 remaining. The Lady Bulldogs (1-0) regained the lead on Meredith Mitchell's three-point play.

Oklahoma (1-1), a Final Four team last season, never led against its first Top 25 opponent since the end of the Courtney Paris era. The Sooners have to replace Paris, the NCAA's all-time rebounding leader, and her sister, Ashley.

Whitney Hand led Oklahoma with 13 points, while Abi Olajuwon had 10 points and nine rebounds.
