Jean Kenney closed an 11-point performance with six free throws in the final 1:04 to help seal the victory.
LSU's Danielle Ballard grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds, including eight on the offensive end to keep possessions alive.
Jasmine Hassell led Georgia with 18 points and tied a career high with 12 rebounds.
