Tennessee turns up defensive pressure to clip Georgia

Jan 14, 2007 - 9:57 PM ATHENS, Georgia (Ticker) -- Alexis Hornbuckle helped show that Tennessee can play championship-level defense also.

Hornbuckle scored 14 points as fourth-ranked Tennessee overcame its own offensive struggles with a stellar defensive effort in a 52-41 Southeastern Conference victory over No. 15 Georgia.

Although Hornbuckle was one of the few Lady Vols to not struggle from the field, she did help out on the defensive end, collecting three steals and two blocks.

It was the 10th consecutive win for the Lady Vols (16-1, 3-0 SEC), who held the Lady Bulldogs to their lowest point total of the season and 31.9 percent (15-of-47) shooting.

Nicky Anosike also scored 14 points while leading scorer Candace Parker managed 10 on 4-of-13 shooting for Tennessee, which finished just 39.6 percent (21-of-53) from the field.

Christy Marshall scored 12 points off the bench for Georgia (14-4, 2-2), which went 1-of-14 (7 percent) from the arc to lose for the second time in three games.
