Georgia falls at Tennessee; recruit picks Gamecocks over UGA

By Brent Zell

A couple of notes from Thursday night:

  • The No. 15 Lady Dogs basketball team found out Thursday that Tennessee’s pretty good down low during the No. 6 Lady Vols’ 80-51 win in Knoxville. Georgia (12-3 overall, 1-1 in SEC) got outscored 42-12 in the paint and was outrebounded 52-32. The Lady Dogs were as close as five points late in the first half before Tennessee (11-3, 2-0) went on a 6-2 run to lead 36-37 at the break. Georgia never got closer than six in the second half, and that was early on. Meredith Mitchell had 14 points for Georgia, which next plays at 2 p.m. Sunday at Auburn.
  • Defensive back Chaz Elder picked South Carolina over Georgia last night during the Under Armour All-America game. And to celebrate, he may take trips to … Vanderbilt and Arkansas?
