LSU women knock off No. 17 Georgia 71-60

By The Associated Press

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Chloe Jackson scored 21 points, Ayana Mitchell and Raigyne Louis had double-doubles and LSU defeated No. 17 Georgia 71-60 on Thursday night.

Mitchell scored 16 points and grabbed 15 rebounds and Louis had 15 and 10 — and was an assist shy of a triple-double — for the Tigers (14-6, 5-3).

Mackenzie Engram, who surpassed 1,000 career points, hit a 3-pointer in the first minute of the fourth quarter to put the Bulldogs (19-3, 7-2 Southeastern Conference) within one but the Tigers scored the next five and turned that into an 11-2 run for a 62-52 lead.

LSU outscored Georgia 20-13 in the fourth quarter with 14 points coming from the foul line on 18 attempts. The last 11 points free throws came in the last 1:42 after a four minute scoring drought for both teams.

Georgia, which was 7-0 in January, got 15 points from Que Morrison and 5 of 20 in the fourth quarter.
