Posted:

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Jasmine Hassell scored 14 points as No. 13 Georgia overwhelmed Arkansas 66-34 Thursday night to set a school record for fewest points allowed in a Southeastern Conference regular-season game.

The Lady Bulldogs defeated South Carolina by an identical score in the 2011 SEC tournament.

In their Jan. 17 matchup against the Razorbacks, the Lady Bulldogs trailed by 15 before rallying for a 57-53 win. This time, Georgia (22-4, 10-3) surged to an 18-4 lead and went into halftime ahead 30-16.

The Lady Bulldogs opened the second half with a 17-6 spurt, eventually pushing their advantage to 34 points.

Arkansas, which shot 26.4 percent from the field (14 of 53), posted its lowest output since losing to No. 14 Vanderbilt 61-34 on Jan. 28, 2007.

Jasmine James added 12 points for Georgia.

Dominique Wilson and Erin Gatling scored eight points apiece for the Razorbacks (17-0, 5-8), whose two-game winning streak ended.
