ATLANTA -- Shacobia Barbee scored 12 points and grabbed 14 rebounds as undefeated No. 22 Georgia beat Georgia State 70-58 Sunday in the Georgia State Thanksgiving Invitational championship.

Barbee also had a game-high seven steals and six assists. Erika Ford and Tiaria Griffin each added 14 points.
