    ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Megan Darrah and Sherill Baker each scored 16 points to lead No. 17 Georgia to a 72-66 win over previously unbeaten Georgia Tech on Sunday.

    Georgia Tech (5-1) led 53-51 with 8 minutes remaining before Janese Hardrick, who scored 14 points in a reserve role, sparked a 14-2 run by the Lady Dogs (5-2).

    Georgia extended its lead to 65-55 at 3:44 and shot 5-for-8 from the line in the last 42 seconds to hold off Tech.

    The state rivals played in Athens for the first time since 1989.

    Janie Mitchell, whose mother played at Georgia in the early 1980s, led Tech with 18 points. Jill Ingram hit four 3-pointers and finished with 15 points, and Chioma Nnamaka added 14.

    Tasha Humphrey scored 14 points for Georgia, which improved to 26-2 against Tech, which had won two of the last three matchups, including last year in Atlanta.

    Georgia led 30-28 at the break and pulled away early in the second half.

    Ingram hit four 3-pointers in a 4-minute stretch as Tech moved out to a 51-48 midway through the second half before Georgia rallied with the 14-2 run.
