SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Jasmine Hassell scored six of her 13 points in the final 3 minutes and fourth-seeded Georgia reached the NCAA women's regional finals for the first time since 2004 with a 61-59 victory over top-seeded Stanford on Saturday night.
Georgia overcame three major scoring droughts, including falling behind 9-0 to start the game, to oust the No. 1 seed from the Spokane Regional and end Stanford's hopes of reaching the Final Four for the sixth straight year.
Jasmine James led Georgia (28-6) with 16 points, including a pair of free throws with 23.5 seconds left that gave the Lady Bulldogs a 60-56 lead. It's the 11th trip to the regional finals for coach Andy Landers in his long tenure at Georgia.
Chiney Ogwumike led Stanford (33-3) with 26 points, but was held to eight in the second half.
