By The Associated Press
ATHENS -- Khaalidah Miller hauled in a game-high 11 rebounds and added seven points and six assists to help No. 24 Georgia beat Presbyterian 45-30 Sunday in the season opener for both teams.

The Bulldogs shot 32 percent from the field and out-rebounded the Blue Hose 51-37.

With the game tied 6-6 early in the first half, Georgia used a 9-0 run sparked by two Erika Ford jump shots and held Presbyterian to just four points in the remainder of the half for a 19-10 advantage.

The Blue Hose, who were 11-of-55 on field goal attempts, pulled within nine early in the second half. Georgia answered back, leading by as many as 16 with 9:16 to play.

Merritt Hempe scored a game-high 10 points and grabbed six rebounds. Krista Donald added eight points and nine rebounds for the Bulldogs.

Keyonna Allen and Rebecca Walker paced Presbyterian, each scoring seven points.
