Georgia Falls to Vanderbilt, 72-55



Tray Littlefield

Sr. Associate Director


The Georgia women’s basketball team lost to the Vanderbilt Commodores, 72-55, Sunday afternoon in the regular season finale at Memorial Gymnasium. 

 

Fifth-year senior forward Javyn Nicholson scored in double figures for the 28th time in 29 games to lead Georgia with 14 points and nine rebounds. 

 

Georgia (12-17, 3-13) will now await its SEC tournament seeding. The Lady Bulldogs open the conference tournament on Wednesday. Vanderbilt improves to 22-8 overall and 9-7 in league play. 

 

Georgia was down 13-2 early, but a Jordan Cole basket jump-started a four-point spurt for the Lady Bulldogs, who trailed 17-10 at the end of the first quarter. 

 

Chloe Chapman came off the bench and scored six points to help Georgia cut the lead to just three at 19-16 with 6:20 left in the second period. From there, the Commodores went on an 8-0 run as Georgia missed its final 10 shots in the period and trailed 30-18 at the half. Chapman led the Lady Bulldogs with eight first-half points. 

 

Georgia kept fighting and got within four late in the third quarter at 47-43. An intentional foul against Nicholson gave Vanderbilt a four-point trip down the floor, and Georgia never inched closer. 

 

The Lady Bulldogs outshot the Commodores 40 to 38 percent, but could not overcome 19 turnovers in the loss.
