Jasmine Hassell scored 22 points and No. 8 Georgia held Georgia Tech to 30% shooting in a 60-50 victory over their in-state rival Sunday.
Georgia Tech (3-4) cut an 18-point deficit to six points with less than two minutes left, but Hassell hit a layup and Khaalidah Miller went 4 for 4 from the foul line in the final minute for the Bulldogs (9-0).
Hassell, a 6-foot-2 senior, made 10 of 13 shots from the floor and had seven rebounds. Miller scored 11 points and Shacobia Barbee had eight rebounds.
Aaliyah Whiteside hit a trio of 3-pointers to spark Georgia Tech's late comeback and scored all of her 14 points in the second half. Tyaunna Marshall had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Yellow Jackets.
