By The Associated Press

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Caliya Robinson had 15 points and nine rebounds and No. 14 Georgia played strong defense to beat Saint Bonaventure 67-40 on Friday night in the Lady Bulldogs' season opener.

Robinson, a senior forward, played only 21 minutes and sat out the final period. Taja Cole had 10 points for Georgia.

Georgia (1-0) held the Bonnies (1-1) to 16 first-half points. Saint Bonaventure made only 12 of 55 shots (21.8 percent) from the field.

Asianae Johnson led Saint Bonaventure with nine points.

Maryland transfer Jenna Staiti had nine points before fouling out in her Georgia debut. The 6-foot-6 Staiti, a sophomore, sat out last season.

After leading 21-10 at the end of the opening period, the Lady Bulldogs allowed a combined 10 points in the next two periods. Georgia led 55-20 entering the final quarter.

Dajah Logan and Emily Calabrese each had six points for Saint Bonaventure.

Georgia returns six of its top seven scorers from its 2017-18 team that finished 26-7, including 12-4 in the Southeastern Conference.
