ATHENS, GA. -- Stephanie Paul scored 15 points and Gabby Connally tallied 12 points to lead Georgia to a 61-38 victory over Furman in women's basketball action Tuesday evening at Stegeman Coliseum.

Georgia (6-3) outscored Furman (4-4) 16-2 in the first period to take control and was never headed in cruising to the victory.

The Paladins were paced by sophomore center Celena Taborn with eight points.

Playing without injured redshirt sophomore forward Tierra Hodges, the squad's leading rebounder (6.9 rpg) who contributed 11 points and 11 rebounds in last Friday's win over UNC Asheville, Furman shot just 23.9 percent from the field, making only 11-of-46 shots, including just 1-of-16 from 3-point range.

Hodges' replacement, Tyah Hunter, contributed six points and six rebounds in 20 minutes of action.

Georgia shot just 34.3 percent (23-of-67), but the Bulldogs registered a 51-32 rebounding advantage, paced by Paul's 10 caroms.

Georgia took advantage of 20 Paladin turnovers to post a 22-5 scoring advantage off miscues.
