Staiti, No. 17 Georgia women coast past Saint Francis 82-45

By The Associated Press

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Jenna Staiti scored 16 points, Reigan Richardson added 13 and No. 17 Georgia cruised to an 82-45 win over Saint Francis (PA) on Sunday.

The Bulldogs (10-1) never trailed, steadily building a 47-30 halftime lead. They made 6 of 9 3-pointers and shot 19 of 33 (58%) overall.

A 13-2 run to close the third quarter made it 64-36. The Bulldogs finished 8 of 15 from distance and 34 of 64 overall.

Saint Francis (0-10) shot 38.5%, going 2 of 12 from 3-point range, and had 21 turnovers. Jordan McLemore led the Red Flash with 10 points.

The only other time the teams played was in the 1996 NCAA Tournament, when the Bulldogs later lost in the championship game.

Georgia had no letdown coming off an 82-80 overtime win over No. 2 North Carolina State. The Bulldogs have won 18 of 22 games dating back to last season, five over ranked teams. The win over the Wolfpack was the first time in school history they beat a top two team in a true road game.
