    NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Christina Wirth scored 23 points and Vanderbilt (No. 23 ESPN/USA Today, No. 22 AP) committed just three turnovers Friday in a 69-61 victory over Georgia in the Southeastern Conference tournament quarterfinals.

    Tia Gibbs finished with 13 points, Meredith Marsh scored 12 and Jennifer Risper had 11 for Vanderbilt. The three turnovers was an SEC women's tournament record low.

    Georgia (18-13) trailed 62-56 when Ashley Houts, the Lady Bulldogs' leading scorer this season, scored her only points of the game on a 3-pointer with 2:06 to play. Houts then fed Angel Robinson underneath to cut it to 62-61 with 1:22 left.

    But Vanderbilt (22-8) answered with a 3 by Marsh and two foul shots by Wirth to make it 67-61 lead with 31.3 seconds to play.

    Robinson finished with 29 points and 16 rebounds for Georgia.
