    Irvin starts fast, finishes with double-double

    HONOLULU (AP) -- Sandora Irvin had 28 points and 15 rebounds to lead Texas Christian to a 64-63 victory over No. 3 Georgia on Saturday night in the semifinals of the Rainbow Wahine Classic.

    With less than 10 seconds remaining in the game and TCU up 64-63, Georgia's Alexis Kendrick missed a 3-pointer and Megan Darrah's last-ditch putback attempt sailed over the basket to seal the win for the Lady Frogs.

    It was a reflection of the Lady Bulldogs' game overall.

    "We didn't shoot very well ," Georgia coach Andy Landers said. "We missed a lot of good shots."

    Georgia (3-1) finished the game shooting just 30.9 percent from the field, including 22.7 percent in the second half.

    "We did a lot of flying around," Irvin said. "Everybody working together, try to force them to shoot bad shots."

    Irvin scored 18 of the Lady Frogs' first 21 points, and Texas Christian led by as many as seven points in the first half.

    "We were opportunistic against their zone," TCU coach Jeff Mittie said. "We hit some big 3s and Irvin got off to such a great start and we had a lot of confidence through her start."

    TCU (4-1) will meet Michigan State (No. 14 ESPN/USA Today, No. 13 AP) in the championship game Sunday. Michigan State (4-0) beat Santa Clara 81-59.

    Ashley Davis added 12 points and 10 rebounds for Texas Christian, and Vanessa Clementino had 11 points. Tasha Humphrey led Georgia with 13 points.
