    Georgia responds to season's first loss by handling Arkansas on road

    Associated Press

    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- The way Arkansas coach Tom Collen sees it, one player might be the only difference between his team and No. 6 Georgia.

    Ashley Houts had 16 points, nine assists and eight rebounds, and Georgia rebounded from its first loss of the season with a 73-63 win over Arkansas on Sunday.

    "You take Ashley Houts and put her on our team, I don't think we're as good as Georgia," Collen said. "But we're missing such a small part that if you put Ashley Houts on our team, we're an NCAA tournament team."

    The Lady Bulldogs (17-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference), who were handed a 22-point loss Thursday at Vanderbilt, broke open a close game late in the first half and put things away for good with a 16-2 run in the second.

    "I'm really, really pleased with our team in light of the fact we didn't play well on Thursday night and suffered our first loss," Georgia coach Andy Landers said. "And to see them handle all of that and come out sharp and play with some enthusiasm, we needed that."

    Jasmine Hassell added 14 points and Meredith Mitchell had 11 for Georgia, which forced Arkansas (8-10, 0-5) into 11 turnovers and held the Razorbacks to just 28.4 percent shooting.

    "We weren't executing right and tonight that's why we weren't getting the best shots," Arkansas sophomore Lyndsay Harris said. "It was really our execution more than anything else."

    Harris scored 17 points, while Charity Ford added 12 on 3-of-15 shooting for Arkansas.
