Humphrey, Georgia escape despite long droughtFeb 24, 2008 - 11:48 PM ATHENS, Georgia (Ticker) -- Tasha Humphrey dominated the paint with 22 points, 14 rebounds and two blocks to lift 22nd-ranked Georgia to a 68-56 win over Auburn in a Southeastern Conference battle on Sunday.
Angel Robinson also did damage in the post, collecting 14 points, 11 boards and three blocks as the Lady Bulldogs shot 48 percent (14-of-29) in the first half to race out to a 34-21 edge at the break.
However, Georgia (20-7, 7-5 SEC) went cold in the second half as its advantage was sliced to 57-51 following a nine-minute drought without a field goal.
But Humphrey, who moved into second place on Georgia's all-time scoring list with 2,191 career points, finally came through with a much-needed basket to help the Bulldogs hold off the rally.
DeWanna Bonner had 20 points and 11 rebounds and Sherell Hobbs scored 14 for the Tigers (18-9, 6-6), who was held to just 31 percent (22-of-69) shooting.
