    ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Sherill Baker scored 19 points, and Megan Darrah and Tasha Humphrey had 18 apiece as Georgia (No. 16 ESPN/USA Today; No. 17 AP) routed Savannah State 106-34 Saturday night.

    Cori Chambers added 15 points for the Bulldogs (7-2), who limited the Lady Tigers to one field goal in the first half.

    Savannah State committed 21 turnovers while shooting 1-for-18 from the field in the first half. Five of the missed shots were air balls. Georgia led 24-0 before the Lady Tigers, who had 14 turnovers in their first 16 possessions, got on the board with a pair of free throws 9:31 into the game.

    Shamice James finally scored Savannah State's lone field goal of the first half with just 42 seconds remaining, when Georgia led 53-9. Chambers alone outscored the Lady Tigers in the opening period with 13 points.
