Indiana Falls on the Road to No. 18/18 Georgia
Nov. 21, 2010
ATHENS, Ga. - The No. 18 Georgia (3-0) offensive output was too much for the Indiana women's basketball team (2-2) as the Bulldogs defeated the Hoosiers, 84-51, in Athens, Ga., on Sunday, Nov. 21. Senior Hope Elam led IU in scoring pouring in 16 points and seniors Whitney Lindsay and Jori Davis added 13 and 10 points, respectively.
The Bulldogs came out firing early jumping out to a 7-0 lead behind back-to-back buckets from Jasmine James. The Hoosiers began their scoring with a 3-pointer from senior Andrea McGuirt to end the run. Georgia's hot shooting continued as they took a 44-25 lead into halftime while shooting 56 percent from the field (15-of-27) and 58 percent from beyond the arc (7-of-12). Lindsay paced the Hoosiers in the first half with nine points on 3-of-6 shooting.
Georgia's second half began like its first with a strong run before Lindsay picked the pocket of a Bulldog guard for a runaway layup. Throughout the second half Georgia continued with its offensive success to pull away for the victory.
"I love the fact that there were some good things that came from our guard play," head coach Felisha Legette-Jack said. "I think that you play the game for March and I think that our team has learned a lesson and will continue to get better for the month of March."
IU will return to action on Wednesday, Nov. 24, as it welcomes Saint Louis to Assembly Hall for a 7 p.m. ET tip time.
Senior Whitney Lindsay matched her season-high of 13 points, matching her performance against Ball State on Nov. 12.
Senior Hope Elam has scored in double-digits in four-straight games to start the season. She added to that streak netting 16 points against Georgia.
