    Humphrey nets 26 as No. 14 Georgia routs No. 23 UK

    ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Tasha Humphrey had 26 points and 10 rebounds, leading No. 14 Georgia to a 91-57 victory over No. 21 Kentucky on Thursday night.

    The victory was the 650th for Georgia coach Andy Landers, and the Bulldogs' third straight since a one-point loss to LSU.

    Landers is the eighth women's basketball coach to reach the milestone, and only the second to do it at one school. Tennessee coach Pat Summitt got her 901st win Sunday -- all with the Lady Vols.

    Kentucky kept the game close for most of the first half, and consecutive baskets by the Wildcats' Jenny Pfeiffer cut the margin to 29-23 with 6 minutes left. However, the Lady Bulldogs (16-5, 6-2 SEC) ended the half with a 12-4 run to build a 41-29 lead at the break.

    Kentucky (15-5, 4-3) moved into the Top 25 this week for the first time since 1993 by handing Tennessee its first conference loss of the season last Thursday.

    After Sarah Elliott's jumper pulled Kentucky within 51-37 early in the second half, Sherill Baker's jumper began an 11-0 run for Georgia that put the game out of reach.

    Baker finished with 19 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and five steals. Megan Darrah added 14 points and Cori Chambers and Janese Hardrick had 13 apiece.

    Eleia Roddy led Kentucky with 12 points, followed by Samantha Mahoney with 11 and Nastassia Alcius with 10.

    Humphrey drew a technical foul in the second half for taunting, and fouled out with 4:07 to play.
